Treasure Hunt

Me and Mrs Littigator are organising a treasure hunt on the afternoon of Saturday 21st March to raise money for the charity we are going to spend 6 months in Kenya working with.

All the money raised will go directly to the community we will be working with which includes an orphanage which takes children from all over Southern Kenya (for God's sake will someone please think of the children!)

Although it's not an alleycat, people are more than welcome to use bikes, the route will be based mainly along the river (both sides) from Tower Bridge to Waterloo and there might be a prize (amoungst others) for the first finishing team. You'll be up against people relying on public transport so that should give you a sufficient head start.

Further details to follow, but all comers welcome. Entry will be 10 quid per person and teams will be up to 4 or 6 (not decided yet which) and will include a free entry into the raffle. Prizes for which are almost unbelievably stunning and underwhelming. Think Bullseye circa 1980s and you'll be about right, although we couldn't afford the speedboat or caravan.

Speaking of which, if anyone can offer owt for nowt that we can give as a prize then feel free to pm me.

Cheers all and I hope some of you can make it and get together a team or two.

    It's because you've recently given up mouthing the words as you read them and saying them out loud. Regress a little, go fast, and it will all become clear...

    Thick hunt.
    Swim. Bike. Run. Yeah. That's what I used to do.
