Go for gold-the hunt is still on

Golden Pebble for a Good Cause Still Missing

PEBBLES worth £1,050 are still hiding in Ferry Meadows Country Park after the GO for Gold Treasure Hunt weekend finished with 11 stones still to be found.


Two of the pebbles were painted gold and worth £500 in gift vouchers to a local school, youth group or charity - and one of them is still out there!


Treasure hunters enjoyed a lovely weekend at the local nature attraction searching for 50 pebbles, each of which were worth £50 to the finder in GO Outdoors gift vouchers.

The event was held to celebrate the opening of GO Outdoors' new 30,000 sq ft shop on Saville Road, Peterborough, which is the company's 50th store.


Alpha Kindergarten will receive a £500 donation after manager Nick Douglas found Saturday's golden pebble.


But Sunday's star prize has still not been claimed and GO Outdoors have released a picture clue of its hiding place to help hunters find the prize and support a local good cause.


Mr Douglas says the £500 prize will enable children at Alpha Kindergarten to enjoy the outdoors more often and in much more comfort. He commented: "It was an excellent day at Ferry Meadows and I'm so happy to have found a golden pebble, which will be of great benefit to the children.


"We will probably buy waterproof overalls and wellies and also a shelter for when we go on trips."


The nursery and after-school club in Weiman Road, Peterborough, is attended by 89 children, ranging from three months up to 12-years-old.


GO will release further clues for all the missing pebbles at 12 noon on Friday, December 12, at their Peterborough store webpage (www.gooutdoors.co.uk/peterborough), so treasure hunters can look for the pebbles in the park this weekend.

And if you are lucky enough to find one of the pebbles, please email peterborough@gooutdoors.co.uk to arrange coming into the new GO Outdoors store to collect your prize
