The Peter RabbitTM Egg Hunt 2014

STOP PRESS: The egg is now almost over for another year.   Well done to all the egg hunters – you were absolutely fantastic!  The sun shined and there were lots of happy people who found an egg!

We are delighted that so many people took part and that we have raised well over £1,000 for WaterAid.   Here are the lucky winners  of the main prize – Helen Oakley & Luke Drew from Wolverhampton who have won a weekend in London with train travel, hotel stay and tickets to the Chelsea Flower Show!

The Egg Hunt will again raise funds and awareness for our nominated charity WaterAid who we have supported for many years raising over £17,000 for their work in Malawi.  It seems right that in our region which is so famous for its water that we should help a part of the world where there is a shortage.


TO TAKE PART… Click here to give a minimum donation of £2 to WaterAid and the fun begins!  There are 50 eggs to find.

HOW IT WORKS: You take part in the Egg Hunt by using your mobile signal to view a google map with clues and markers which lead you to an egg.  When you find an egg it is yours to keep.  You must call or text us to tell us you have found the egg ASAP and to see if you have won one of the top prizes.  We will then remove that egg marker from the live map.  You will need to keep refreshing the map on your mobile device!

SAFETY: For safety reasons, all eggs will be placed in a safe location and will not require you to go near water or stray far from the footpath.

Disclaimer: The Egg Hunt will take part in the Lake District and requires a mobile device to view a google map.  NB we cannot guarantee mobile signal in all areas – you may need back up from a friend or family member on wifi at home!

We rely on egg hunters to let us know when they have found an egg and we update it the moment we know.  Please be aware however that sometimes there is a delay with this happening due to mobile signal.  Keep refreshing your map for the most up to date info!
