The Race Is On!

On Saturday 23rd September 2017, Wessex Cancer Trust is holding a Scavenger Hunt around the New Forest. Starting in Burley, teams in cars will be following clues around the New Forest in the hope of winning the £100 cash prize!

Teams from all backgrounds are welcome to get involved – families, corporate teams, and groups of friends looking for something a bit different to do with their weekend! Lists of photographs to take and things to collect along the way will be given to all teams, with points assigned to each item, and there will also be cryptic clues of destinations around the Forest. Participants will have to decide on their own strategies to try to get the most points possible, to be in with a chance of winning.

Local businesses have really been getting on board with the event, and the Trust are delighted to be working with sponsor Oak-Craft at Holmsley Mill. Rachel Rawlings, Fundraiser for Wessex Cancer Trust, said:

There’s a great deal of excitement about our Scavenger Hunt this month, especially with the added bonus of a cash prize this year! We’re expecting it to be a really unique and enjoyable day out, open to people of all ages and abilities and very family friendly, with a few brain-teasers, a bit of silliness, and a whole lot of fun throughout the day!
