Title: Family Treasure Hunt in Marple Memorial Park [Saturday 29 April 2017]
Post by: admin on March 15, 2017, 06:29:25 PM
Family Treasure Hunt in Marple Memorial Park : Saturday 29 April 2017 between 11am to 2pm

We that hope this year's Treasure Hunt can emulate the success of the last two years, when over £400 and £940 was raised for Friends of Marple Memorial Park.

The Treasure Hunt is aimed at 3 to 10 year olds with parents, grandparents or carers to assist as needed.
Hunt for clues and answer questions to reveal the information that will open the Treasure Chest for a share of the prize.

The hunt should take around 20 to 30 minutes and you can start at any time between 11am and 2pm.

This is a FREE EVENT but there will be a collection bucket for donations to Friends of Marple Memorial Park.

The event is again being organised and sponsored by Julian Wadden, the Estate Agents on the Hollins near to the park entrance.

Other local business sponsors are being sought and also help with raffle prizes.
If you'd like your business to be involved please get in touch with Jonathan Hyde, Manager at Julian Wadden:

Thanks to all for organising and helping out at The Family Treasure Hunt. Our young grandchild thoroughly enjoyed hunting for the clues.
During the search it also gave us the chance to have a proper look round at all the lovely flower beds  - so another thank you to all the volunteers who give their time to maintain the gardens.
We hope you raised lots of money which, we understand, will go towards continuing your good work in The Memorial Park.

Thank you for your comments @Lily! The Treasure Hunt was even busier than last year and it's certain that the total raised will be a new record too. One sponsor pulled out and a small number are still to pay but as soon as everything is counted and confirmed we'll update with full details of the funding raised for the park.

A big thank you to Estate Agent Julian Wadden and all the generous local businesses that have been so supportive, and a very special thank you to Di Jackson, our volunteer who did such a brilliant job of marketing the event to local businesses and coordinating the sponsorship and raffle prizes.

I'm pleased to report that the Treasure Hunt raised an amazing total of £1,450 (subject to the last few sponsorship payments being received).

This was made up of £146 donations on on the day, £289 raffle takings and £1,015 of sponsorship paid / pledged.

Thank you once again to all the local businesses for their support and for local people for coming along!
