The event saw 15 teams searching for clues while motoring across the regions in various modes of transport including vintage cars, motorbikes, and sports cars, starting from Shelsley Walsh, Worcestershire, the oldest motorsport venue in the world, and ending the race in Powys, Wales.

The event which took place on Thursday 13 October saw teams from the local business community dressed up in various outfits, including impersonations of the Addams Family, Ghostbusters, and Freddie Mercury this year.

The Little Princess Trust provides real hair wigs for children undergoing cancer treatment and funds vital research into kinder and more effective treatments for childhood cancers. This latest event brings the overall total raised for the charity through the Treasure Quest to more than £50,000.

Event organiser Martyn Edwards from Colliers’ Property Management team, who himself lost his hair while undergoing treatment for stage 4 bowel cancer, said: “We’re thrilled to have exceeded our fundraising target and reach the £50,000 mark. This has always been such a fun event, which the local business community has got behind. We have lots of great memories of the event over the years, and we are already looking forward to The Treasure Quest in 2023. It’s very important to us to be able to support this amazing charity, which does so much to support children undergoing cancer treatment. 

“I know that as a grown man losing my hair and going through treatment was exhausting both physically and mentally. I’m pleased that our efforts will go towards supporting children going through this experience now and in the future. “

Having 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 getting involved in next year’s event!”
