Treasure Trail Challenge for Mary's Meals
Our hugely successful 2017 Treasure Trail Challenge brought in an excellent £1,000 for Mary's Meals, which is now feeding 1,187,104 hungry children every school day.
The chosen charity for this year's Treasure Trail event was Mary's Meals. Have a look at their website: www.marysmeals.org to see what wonderful work they do to help deprived children throughout the world.
Mary's Meals can feed a child at school for £12 a year, which means that each team of up to 4 people entering the competition (entry fee £5 per person) can feed one child for a whole school year! Now that's worth doing!
The competition was held on Thursday, 7th September. After an anxious, slow, start we were delighted to have a good number of teams following a trail that took them through the streets of central Glasgow where they found the answers to a series of fascinating questions.
As the teams returned - just a little damp! - there was an enjoyable session of social networking while the sheets were marked.
The contributions towards the raffle prizes was simply overwhelming and facilitated the selling of over 200 tickets on the night.
All in all a very enjoyable night with a creditable £1,000 raised to assist the great work of Mary’s Meals across the world.
Thanks indeed to everyone who contributed and assisted, and especially to Steven MacFarlane who devised the route and compiled the clues, rhymes and marked the answers.
