Eagle-eyed youngsters have the chance to win a prize for finding hidden jewels in their nearest East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) shop.
The charity has 44 stores, providing vital funds to support families and care for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex.
Now, to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee, EACH is planning a fun community event called the Queen’s Quest.
It will run throughout next week, from Monday (30th May) to Sunday (5th June), and there will be three main activities – a treasure hunt, a colouring challenge and a free children’s book with every purchase over £5.
The treasure hunt gives youngsters the chance to help the Queen find her lost crown jewels in time for the Jubilee. Three sets of jewels will be hidden in each store throughout the week and children have the task of finding the complete set.
If successful, they will be rewarded with a chocolate coin.
Harri McBride, EACH retail central support manager, said: “Everyone’s looking forward to next week’s celebrations and this is fun, community activity to engage with children and get them in the mood.
“In addition to finding the jewels, we’re also inviting youngsters of all ages to take part in our colouring challenge and the top designs will be displayed in our shop windows.”
EACH has three hospices – The Nook, near Norwich, The Treehouse, in Ipswich, and at Milton, near Cambridge.
