Action Against Hunger Car Treasure Hunt

Posted on 28th February, 2019

Car Rally / Treasure Hunt

14thApril 2019



Action Against Hunger

My name is Sarah Hunter and I live in Charlton Lane, West Farleigh.  I am an undergraduate student at the University of Nottingham, studying architecture in my second year.  On top of my studies, this year I decided to join the society ‘Karnival’.  As part of this, I was presented with the opportunity to take on the challenge to climb up to Everest Base Camp, to raise money for Action Against Hunger.  I couldn’t say no!  So that is exactly what I am doing.

This September, I will be trekking 5,380m up Mount Everest.  However, I can only do this providing I raise £3,000 for Action Against Hunger.  They are such an amazing charity that so many people have never even heard of!  They save the lives of malnourished children.  They ensure that everyone can access clean water, food, training and healthcare.  They enable entire communities, in nearly 50 countries worldwide, to be free from hunger.

I am holding another event in West Farleigh to raise money.


Car Rally / Treasure Hunt - Sunday 14thApril 2019

Time:                   12noon 

Starting Point:    The Tickled Trout

Finishing Point:   Football Hut, Charlton Lane

Cost:                    £20 per car (maximum of 4 people per car)


There will be places to stop during the rally for refreshments.  At the end of the rally there will also be refreshments made available at the Football Hut.



Tickets must be purchased in advance. We may have to restrict the number of cars, so you are advised to book early to avoid disappointment.  As I am in Nottingham, please email or telephone/text my mum for tickets (email: janehunter01@gmail.comor 07928 036800). 


The car rally is not a race! It is intended to be a fun day for all the occupants of the car to take part and enjoy. 

There will be a raffle at the end of the rally. I know this is cheeky, but if anyone has an item they could donate for the raffle it would be greatly appreciated.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who participated in the quiz on 25thJanuary 2019.  An amazing £452.86 was raised – thank you so much.  In particular, I must thank Pete Hards for helping me with the quiz, and also Sue O’Donnell for her help at the church.

Finally, I do hope you will be able to join me at the car rally.  It should be a fun day for neighbours to meet up and it is for a really good cause.  I will notify the Farleighs website (www.thefarleighs.co.uk) with the starting point as soon as I have an idea of how many cars will be taking part.  I look forward to meeting you there.
