Children raised £530 for the pupils of Thorneyholme RC Primary school by taking part in a treasure hunt.

Organised by Friends of Thorneyholme School, the trail, around the village of Dunsop Bridge involved using a treasure map to locate Easter eggs and crack the code to find the hidden location of the golden egg. 

Maps were available from Puddleducks Tearoom for £2.50 and included a chocolate treat, and the winner received a £20 toy voucher. 

More than 200 children completed the trail during the holidays despite the wet weather.

Thorneyholme RC Primary school, headteacher, Claire Halstead said: ‘It was lovely to hear that so many families took part in the trail even with all the rain we had. We don’t shy away from a bit of bad weather here in Dunsop Bridge.

"We do lots of our learning outside, thanks to our outdoor classroom and regular forest school activities in the adjacent woodland.

"We’re very lucky to be based in such an idyllic spot, and I’m delighted to hear that families travelled from far and wide to complete the annual Easter trail and explore our beautiful rural setting.

‘We must, as always, say a big thank you to Friends of Thorneyholme School who work hard to support our little school with lots of fundraising activities throughout the year."
