A CHARITY treasure hunt held at Pakefield raised more than £1,1000 for Help for Heroes.

The event, organised by volunteer fund-raiser John Turley, took place on May 30 and included the treasure hunt, in which families pursued clues by car, and by a barbecue and raffle. It was staged with the help of Paul Atkins of the Oddfellows pub, Pakefield.

A total of £1107.81 was raised for Help for Heroes, which supports troops wounded in current conflicts

Mr Turley said: “I'd like to thank all those who took part and others, too many to mention, who donated money and or raffle prizes. I'd also like to thank Keith and Tony, without whose clue-setting the treasure hunt wouldn't have been possible, and Jane for her assistance.”

He said he was also grateful to Crystal Waters, of Lowestoft, and to all the following for donating raffle prizes: Booker Cash and Carry; Morrisons; Body Shop; KE Hutsons; Palmers department store; Lowestoft Family Bowl; Pakefield Street Motors; Bengal Spice take-away; Karl Bowler (Roman Furniture); David Moss (South Pier); and David Howells (Eastern Marine Services)

The winners of the treasure hunt were The Explorers team.
