On Saturday 14th July the 'Haddenham Hopefuls' Relay for Life team hosted a family treasure/scavenger hunt around the village. This was a free-to-enter event open to all, using lesser-known pathways and alleyways as well as taking in the community orchard.
Approximately 18 families who took part in the Scavenger hunt — some actually finishing the whole route even though it was an extremely hot afternoon!
Participants were sent out with a quiz sheet and a small paper bag with a list of things to collect and this seemed to be what the children enjoyed the most.
On their return to the Sports & Social Club building they were awarded a goody bag and a drinks voucher for £5 per family from Ian, as way of thanks and welcome to the club.
This was a free event and organisers did hope for more of a turn-out but those families who came said they had a lovely time.
In addition a raffle made another £150 for the Relay for Life pot.
