Popular driving fundraiser for The Little Princess Trust returns to the roads of Worcestershire and Herefordshire


Final checks are being made for the fifth Colliers’ Birmingham Treasure Quest in aid of The Little Princess Trust.

The treasure quest sees teams searching for clues by motoring across the region in various modes of transport including vintage cars, motorbikes and sports cars. Teams of up to five people dress up for the day-long fundraiser for the charity which provides real hair wigs for children undergoing cancer treatment and funds vital research into kinder and more effective treatments for childhood cancers.

This year’s event starts from Shelsley Walsh, Worcestershire - the oldest motorsport venue in the world – on Thursday 13 October, and ends that afternoon at Baskerville Hall Hotel in Hay on Wye, with a celebratory meal and sing-a-long.

Members of the local business community join teams from the commercial real estate firm who have raised more than £40,000 for the charity in recent years.

Event organiser Martyn Edwards from Colliers’ property management team, who himself lost his hair while undergoing treatment for stage 4 bowel cancer, said: “This is such a great fundraising event, we really look forward to organising it every time because it’s such a fun day driving around and seeing the local sites, while dressed in ridiculous outfits. Clients, colleagues and friends really go all out. We’ve had Umpa Lumpas, characters from Peaky Blinders, the Simpsons, and even the Statue of Liberty join us for the day.

“We’ve raised £40,000 over the years, and really hope to hit the £50,000 mark this year.”

Members of The Little Princess Trust also join in the fundraising event. Phil Brace CEO of The Little Princess Trust added: “We’re grateful for all of Martyn’s and the Colliers teams’ hard work raising funds for The Little Princess Trust over the years. It makes such a difference to the lives of the children we support. Consistent fundraisers like these are what helps charities to continue to support people during one of the most difficult times in their lives. We’re looking forward to joining in this year’s event again.”
