Treasure Quest raises over £10,000 for The Little Princess Trust


The Midland’s business community was back together for the ultimate fundraising event last month as they gathered to take part in the fourh annual Treasure Quest to raise funds for The Little Princess Trust. 

The event, which is sponsored by Colliers, sees teams using different modes of transport to navigate their way through the countryside, starting at Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb in Worcestershire - collecting clues along the way as they make their journey to the end destination at Baskerville Hall in Clyro, Powys, just over the Welsh border. Clue pit stops included The Live Inn Whitbourne and The Talbot Inn Knightwick.

Donations from participants and the raffle and auction saw £10,610 raised in total for The Little Princess Trust, which supports children and young people who have lost their hair through cancer treatment. Raffle prizes included Digbeth’s Custard Factory experiences at: Roxy Ball Room, Luna Springs, Las Iguanas, Mockingbird, Birdies and Stag Digbeth. Auction prizes included Swedish lanterns donated by Gwernyfed Wood and a limited edition print by abstract artist Stella Hidden.

Martyn Edwards, a director in the Birmingham office of Colliers and Ambassador for the Charity, said: “It was fantastic to see such a great turn out for the annual Treasure Quest event again this year, following a hiatus last year due to Covid-19. The Little Princess Trust is a charity close to my heart and I am proud to have been able to continue to support them through this fun and unique event. We held our first Treasure Quest in 2017 and since then, through the continued support and participation of our clients and regional business community, we have been able to raise over £40,000 for this inspiring charity.”

As a Stage 4 cancer survivor who went through chemotherapy and lost his hair, Martyn Edwards decided to help children going through the same experience by setting up the Treasure Quest event in 2017 to raise funds for The Little Princess Trust. As well as supporting young people going through cancer treatment, the charity also funds vital research leading to kinder and more effective treatments for all childhood cancers. 

Phil Brace, Chief Executive of The Little Princess Trust, added: “It was wonderful to see this event return again this year. The positive atmosphere, fun and camaraderie that this event generates is so inspiring to be a part of.  As LPT, we always say that it’s amazing what we can achieve when we work together – and the Treasure Quest event is a prime example of this, raising awareness of the work we do amongst an active business community and helping us to grow as an organisation, enabling us to support more and more young people through their cancer treatment.”
