CBIT – “What the Dickens” Treasure Hunt

Twelve teams got together in central London for the “What the Dickens” Treasure Hunt to raise funds for the Child Brain Injury Trust.  We sent the teams running around several streets to look for clues above, below and found corners with the added fun of taking selfies and fancy dress.  The event raised £2,000 for CBIT.

Here is some of the feedback received:

  • the feedback so far has been extremely positive and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
  • Thank you for organising such a fun event. We all had a ball!  I ‘m already looking forward to the next one.
  • Great job, we found it enjoyable and I have spoken to others at different firms who felt the same.
  • We had great fun Adrian and what a great achievement raining £2,000 Well done!
  • Really enjoyed the event and glad to hear about the about the amount raised!

Following evaluation of the event with CBIT we have decided to run the event in 2023 on a similar set up – the fancy dress theme will be confirmed next year.  You can register your interest now for taking part and we are also looking for sponsors for next years event – to register and to seek details of sponsorship please contact our Treasure Hunt guru Adrian Hawley – please email Adrian.
