Fundraisers' £12,000 charity challenge
6:30am Monday 10th February 2014 in News
FUNDRAISERS are taking part in a geocaching event as part of a challenge to raise £12,000 for 12 different charities.
Nicola Noad and Tammy Ellis founded ‘Challenge Twelve’ in December 2012 when they decided to take part in 12 challenges over 12 months to raise £1,200 for 12 different charities.
But this year they are aiming to raise £12,000 and their next challenge is a Geocaching Trail starting and ending at Southwell House, Highbridge, on February 23 from 10am to 3pm – in aid of Alice’s Escapes which offers free holidays for terminally ill children.
The event is £2.50 per person (under-12s free) and guests will be given a geocache trail pack filled with information about the route, a quiz and useful items. Refreshments will raise further funds.
Guests will need their own GPS device or the Geocache App. For details visit geocaching.com or donate at justgiving.com/ teams/challengetwelve or by text with the code CHAL97 and amount to 70070.
