TAMARA Ravs couldn't wipe the smile from her face when she was handcuffed by Inala police and thrown into jail last week.

Without trial, the 16-year-old was held prisoner in a makeshift cell in Inala Plaza with her bail set at $500.

But despite her predicament, Miss Ravs said she was pleased to be locked up as her incarceration would raise money for young Queenslanders.

The Doolandella resident joined a handful of community members and business owners who gave up their freedom to take part in the Time 4 Kids charity fundraiser.

Held by the Police Citizens Youth Club (PCYC), the state-wide event raised funds for the organisation's youth development program.

As a Donut King employee, Miss Ravs was nominated by her company to serve the time and was locked up until her bail was met though donations.

"I agreed to take part because I thought it was a great opportunity to give back to the community," Miss Ravs said.

"But I hope this will be the first and only time I find myself arrested."

Inala PCYC was one of 41 PCYCs to be involved in Time 4 Kids across the state, with the aim to raise $250,000.

PCYC helps 50,000 young Queenslanders each year make positive decisions in their lives.
