Students’ treasure hunt boost for St Rocco’s


WARRINGTON’S Orford Jubilee Neighbourhood Hub is to host a treasure hunt and activities day staged by university students.
The event, called “Map-Along” will have a Neverland theme and is being organised by GMAC Events – a group of four events management students from the University of Chester – Amy Tomlinson, 21, Caitlin Armitage-Conway, 20, Georgiana Hoye, 19 and Melanie Greenwood, 20.
It will take place on Sunday, February 17 from 3pm to 8pm.
The day will include an array of activities, including arts, crafts and cake decorating, alongside the treasure hunt for children to enjoy.
It promises to be a fun experience for all the family.
“Map-Along” was created by GMAC Events to support and raise awareness for Warrington’s St Rocco’s Hospice.
The hospice is a charity providing specialist care and support for patients and their families who have been diagnosed with life- limiting or terminal illnesses. It costs £3.6 million a year to keep running – about £10,000 every day.
More than 78 per cent of that amount has to come from donations and fundraising by the local community.
Melanie Greenwood, GMAC event leader, said: “We are very grateful for the opportunity to fundraise for St Rocco’s.
“The work they do to help people with life-limiting illnesses is inspirational. ‘Map-Along’ has provided a wonderful opportunity to create a mystical and memorable event and we are looking forward to welcoming our guests. We hope we will be able to help make a difference to those being cared for by St. Rocco’s.”
Katie Lawson, community fundraiser for St Rocco’s, said: “We’re really grateful that the students have chosen to support patient care. We rely on support from the local community to help raise £3.6 million a year to allow us to continue caring for people in the Warrington area living with life-limiting illnesses, and their families. We hope the students’ first event goes really well; with their knowledge and skills learnt on their course we’re confident that the event will be a success.”
Tickets cost £5 per child or £8 for two. Tickets for children under two cost £1 and adults go free. Tickets are available on the day or via https://warringtontreasure.ticketlight.co.uk/order/gateway/13342454
