City Giving Day Treasure Hunt – 22nd September 2020
 
 
The City Giving Day Treasure Hunt is the perfect way to support the Lord Mayor’s Appeal, build morale and have fun at the same time. All you need to do is turn up at St Stephen’s Walbrook at 4pm, where you and your team will be given a clue. Crack it together to find the next prize and finally the treasure. The hunt will take no longer than 30 mins and in addition to prizes, wine and refreshments will be available on your return. The first team back is the winner. No special gear or clothing is necessary – you’ll all receive a City Giving Day Treasure Hunt t-shirt, you won’t have to walk any further than half a mile and you are bound to learn something new about the City along the way. If you haven’t got a full team together then it could be the perfect opportunity to meet someone new. Just enter yourself and we will create a team so that you can take part with some new faces.
