Superhero Scavenger Hunt for the homeless!

On Sunday 9th June the SMART Prebend Centre will be hosting a family scavenger hunt to raise awareness and funds for the Bedford based homeless centre.

The Prebend team would like to welcome as many people as possible from the local community and beyond to join the fun, family event. Lisa Harrison, SMART’s Area Manager for Bedford said “we are excited to build on the success of last year’s Superhero bike ride! This year we will be inviting families to walk, ride, scoot or skate their way around our scavenger trail to find hidden treasure! Clues and questions will be suitable for all ages.”

Where and when

The event will take place at Russell Park, Bedford on Sunday 9th June 2019 and runs from 10am until 4pm. There is a small donation of £2 to take part in the hunt and this will include a completion prize pack. In addition to the hunt there will be old fashioned fair games, stalls and refreshments for everyone to enjoy. All profits from the day will be used to support the ongoing running costs of the SMART Prebend Centre.

All who attend are encouraged to dress as Superhero’s, but this is not essential. Children must be accompanied by an adult, with adults able to accompany up to four children. First aiders will be in attendance at the event, however Parents and Guardians will be responsible for the safety of the children they accompany. Children under the age of 16 years who are riding bikes must wear a cycle helmet, those over 16yrs old are encouraged to do.

Jen Robus, SMART’s Acting Outreach Manager for Bedford said “we receive fantastic support from residents and businesses in Bedford for which we are extremely grateful. We are currently looking for sponsors to support the event, so if you are able to help with some of the costs, we’d love to hear from you.”
