Exploring the delights of Bury St Edmunds through a fundraising treasure trail will help a campaign to raise £55,000 for a state-of-the-art prostate cancer scanner.

The family fun day on Sunday, October 27 has been organised by town business Frames Conservatories Direct to boost the year-long fundraising campaign.

Teams of up to six people can take part in the event, which starts and finishes at the company’s showroom in Barton Road.

Steve Savage, retail sales manager, said: “We wanted to support the Beat It campaign as prostate cancer and mens’ health in general is something we are keen to help raise awareness of.

“The treasure trail will lead you around the sights and sounds of Bury St Edmunds. It will be held during the school half-term, so it will be a great event for families. But teams of adult sleuths are equally welcome.”

Teams can walk, cycle or drive around the trail and are asked to donate a minimum of £25, via sponsorship or an entry fee.

Dave Gooderham, fundraising manager at the hospital, said: “With just a few months left of the campaign, our fantastic West Suffolk community have really stepped up their efforts to help us reach the £55,000 target.

“We are so grateful for Frames Conservatories Direct for organising this treasure trail, which will be both fun and a fantastic fundraiser.”

A barbecue, raffle and refreshments will be held after the event, which starts at 10am and is expected to last around two hours.
