Want to join an island-wide scavenger hunt?


Islanders young and old are being invited on an adventure this weekend - an island-wide scavenger hunt to help those in need of end of life care.

Organised by Jersey Pearl in aid of Jersey Hospice, tomorrow's hunt will see participants sent around the island to answer various questions testing their local knowledge.

Two quizzes will be available – one for families and children, and one for the island fanatics who really want to test their knowledge.

As well as the prizes for the most correct answers, Jersey Pearl are encouraging budding photographers to get creative too, with a special prize awarded to those with the best ‘team shot’ photograph too.

The quiz sheet will be available from the Jersey Peal shop in St. Ouen from 10:00 to 14:00 on Saturday, with participants having till 16:00 to return their answers. They recommend a voluntary donation of £5 for anyone taking part. 

Jersey Pearl Director Julia Williams said: “With plenty of outside space our site in St. Ouen is perfect for an activity like this, so we thought let’s go for it. We really are so lucky to have such beautiful scenery and open spaces to enjoy over the past few months, but I thought people would appreciate a little something new to break up all the walks! 

“Lots of effort has been made to ensure Government guidelines can be met by everyone taking part, including the locations of answers or tasks in the quizzes, so hopefully lots of people will come down, join in the fun and help us raise some money for Hospice.”

Hospice Community and Events Co-Ordinator, Marina Brockbank, said: “We are really grateful to Julia and the team at Jersey Pearl for choosing to raise money for Hospice this weekend. 

“The support we’ve received from islanders has been really inspiring over the past few months and to see this continue into 2021 is just amazing. Every penny raised really does help us continue to provide our specialist care."
