Veteran fundraisers Hellen Bach and Norman Macintosh, who were Sir Terry Wogan’s right hand pair for TOGs fundraising, have launched a NEW treasure hunt.
Hellen says’ After lockdown I realised that there are still a lot of people happy to stay at home but are still interested in joining in with competitions, so we devised a treasure hunt that you can join from the comfort of your own home anywhere in the world.
The treasure hunt is based in a little seaside village called Lee on the Solent in Hampshire UK. We have tested the clues and have made sure that people can find the answers on the internet, says Norman.
It’s a bit like the Truman show, the residents of Lee-on-the-Solent don’t realise that there are people out there googling their home village working out the clues and entering the competition.
The prize is a solid silver necklace designed by KatieAnn designs worth over £400 and can be couriered anywhere in the world, to the winner.
The money raised will go to Lee Hub the local library which was closed by the local council and reopened by the villagers and is now run solely by volunteers. Hellen and Norm are Trustees of this library and believe in helping the community.
The Library is not just a place to borrow books, we run lunch clubs for over 60’s and veterans, we have stories and rhymes for the children and science clubs in the summer. A place for all the community.
Hellen and Norman are running this treasure hunt with a view to creating a bigger event in the summer with a treasure worth £4,000 in aid of The British Heart Foundation.
Celebrities Hugh Bonneville, Aled Jones, Harry Ramsden, and local radio presenter Lucy Ambache have all read out clues to help.
The Treasure Hunt closes on the 21st April so get your clues now.
