Local medical charity Cobalt and cancer charity Maggie’s are teaming up to hold The Great Easter Egg Trail on Saturday 31 March in Sandford Park, Cheltenham. Promising to be an egg-citing fun filled event for all ages the trail will take place from 1pm until 4pm in the recreational side of the park, across College Road and next to Sandford Parks Lido.
Entry will be £2.50 per child and quiz sheets will be available on the day from the Lido café, Sandford Park. The trail will be a great way for families to explore the park. Children will be able to follow the clues to collect a chocolate prize at the end. Come and see the Easter Bunny who will be making an appearance and for the chance to win spot prizes throughout the afternoon. Refreshments will be available in the Lido café.
Anna Mason, Centre Fundraising Manager, Maggie’s said ‘We’re very excited about this event which is certain to be great fun for all the family. Whatever the weather just wrap up warm. A stroll around the park will be a great way to work off all that excess chocolate and taking part will help support the work both our charities do’.
