Xert yourself with the Great Xscape

Are you up to the challenge of being blindfolded, driven to a secret location and forced to find your way back?

Think it sounds easy? Here’s the catch – in your teams of three or four you must complete your mission without using mobile phones, money, maps, navigation equipment and without the help of friends or family.

This will be the challenge for the fourth Great Xscape sponsored event organised by St Elizabeth Hospice, which will take place on Saturday 14th April. New twists have been incorporated to make this year’s event fresh and even more exciting than last year’s, which raised thousands of pounds for the Hospice.

As 2012 is the year of the London Olympics, flags of the world will be the event’s theme, which should give you an idea for fancy dress.

There will be a fantastic prize for the winning team, as well as a prize for the most creative fancy dress. After teams have made their way to the set destination, there will be a well-deserved buffet and raffle waiting for them.

The event will start at the Shipwreck Bar and Restaurant in Shotley Gate. Registration is £20 per person.

This year will also see the first Great Xscape in the Waveney area as St Elizabeth Hospice has recently merged with Waveney Hospice Care. This event will start from The Hotel Victoria in Lowestoft on Saturday 21st April.

Nicola Owen, event organiser, said, “This year the Great Xscape is set to be bigger and better than the last and we hope many teams will join in and help us to raise thousands of pounds for the Hospice.”

St Elizabeth Hospice costs £13 a minute to run and relies on the income from events such as the Great Xscape to continue to help improve life for people living with a progressive illness and their families in Suffolk.
