Charity Treasure Hunt increases knowledge of Cambridge

September 18, 2019

The official conference and events bureau for Cambridge recently invited staff from its member venues to take part in a networking treasure hunt to brush up on their local knowledge – and raise funds for its designated charity at the same time.

Meet Cambridge welcomed 30 participants to trial a new team-building product from Visit Cambridge & Beyond which comprises a walking tour led by Blue Badge Guides followed by a treasure hunt where teams are given clues to crack and challenges to overcome.

Funds raised were donated to Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and South Lincolnshire (CPSL) Mind which focuses on support for those with mental health issues.

Teams raced against the clock to get answers before meeting up at Browns Bar & Brasserie for a complimentary drinks reception where the winners were announced.

The winning team was the self-named Enigma: Judith Sloane from Meet Cambridge, Rachel Samuels from Newmarket Racecourses, Lizzie Weitzel and Joe Sloan from the Hallmark Hotel and Louise Higgins from The Education & Conference Centre, Arthur Rank Hospice.

Established in 1998, Meet Cambridge is the conference and events bureau for Cambridge and the only official venue-finding service for space at The University of Cambridge and the Cambridge Colleges. It offers impartial advice and a comprehensive suite of services to help clients deliver exceptional events, from free venue sourcing to full event management. Its extensive portfolio also includes hotels and unique properties in and around the city, providing creative and imaginative settings for all types of events.
