Up for some fun? And prizes? And discovering a few more independents in your area? Awesome.

Following on from the success of our last TAG! A monkey pirate. Why not?Treasure Hunt we thought we'd see if we could top it with a new one, which will be running throughout June.

This time round you're in with a chance to win a bunch of great prizes. They've all been kindly donated by businesses in and around Didsbury, so you can thank them personally.

And – to top it all off – all of the Treasure Hunt businesses offer exclusive deals & discounts to TAG! cardholders, so don't forget your cards.

List those Prizes!

(Yaarrghhh! That's a pirate noise. 'Coz of the treasure. You'll pick it up...)treasure!

How do I take part?

Firstly you'll need to get a treasure map. These can be picked up from:

  • The Didsbury Library;
  • Rumpus Toys
  • Harriet & Dee
  • The Co-operative Food on Burton Road

Once you've got your map you can collect tokens from the businesses listed on the map next time you're wandering around Didsbury. Add a spot of Pritt Stick to the back of each token, glue it to the map and hand it in at Rumpus Toy Shop.

The deadline for entries is 5pm on Saturday, 30th June. Winners will be notified the next day.

In the name of charity...

Francis House Children's Hospice - a home from home where families can receive professional care, support and friendshipTAG!'s designated charity for this event is Francis House Children's Hospice, a wonderful organisation local to Didsbury. If you're feeling generous during your hunting there will be donation boxes in all of the stop-off points, and if you buy a TAG! card half the money will be donated.
