On Tuesday 18 September, the winners of the Accrington Pals Treasure Hunt collected their £200 cheque from sponsors, Hippo Motor Group.

The Treasure Hunt took place at the #AmazingAccrington Town Takeover event on Saturday 1 September. Participants were taken on a journey around Hyndburn to visit war memorials and find the clues they needed – an initiative created to commemorate the centenary of World War One. 12-year-old Liberty Frith and 8-year-old Logan Frith were delighted to find out they had won.

Mum, Emma, commented:

“We spotted the Treasure Hunt in the paper and decided to give it a go. The children really enjoyed doing it and took it in turns to do the clues – they didn’t realise how many war memorials there are in Hyndburn. I also didn’t realise how many wonderful parks we have around us, such as the Memorial Park in Great Harwood. They are so happy to have won and we are thankful to #AmazingAccrington and Hippo Motor Group for pulling out all of the stops with this.”
