Seventy-five households took part in our Charity Easter Treasure Hunt over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend.
Among them were a family across three households who took part separately across New Hartley and North Shields and virtually shared their experience with their fun pictures!
Jill Cordes works in workforce development at the Freeman Hospital and her daughter Beth is a nurse on ward 11 at Great North Children’s Hospital and they completed the trail in New Hartley near Whitley Bay.
Jill’s niece and husband Kayley and Gary Wallace and their three children Amelie, eight Erin, five and Isla, three are taking part in North Shields.
Her nephew and his wife Mitchell and Danielle joined in with their children Evie, nine and Lois, five.
Our Easter Weekend Treasure Hunt was a fantastic way to have fun with your loved ones over the Easter weekend while raising money for the Great North Children’s Hospital Foundation.
The challenge raised approximately £750 for Great North Children’s Hospital Foundation helping to make a positive difference to the many children and their families who come to our hospital for treatment and care, making their experience the best it possibly can be, as well as supporting our colleagues who look after them.
Participants were sent their Treasure Pack including a list of items to hunt with their household or a friend. When they found each item, they had their picture taken with it in the most fun, wacky, or creative way they could think of and submitted their photos! Every treasure photo gained 5 points. Those with the most points and the most creative photograph won a prize.
Jill said: “I have five great nieces under ten and every year they get loads of Easter eggs as we have a big family, so this year I thought I’d book this treasure hunt for them instead.
“We can’t get together at the moment as there are too many of us so this was a lovely way of keeping in touch over the bank holiday weekend virtually with our photos.”
