Corporate teams wanted for James-Bond style mission

Corporate teams wanted for James-Bond style mission

All the fun and success of our Great Xscape fundraising mission rests on one big secret – the location.

For this adventurous event teams of three or four people will meet at a local pub then be blindfolded, put on a coach and dropped off somewhere in the Suffolk countryside on Saturday 20th March.

From there they will have the James Bond-style challenge of finding their way back to the pub by any means they can – in the quickest time.

With them they will have little more than the clothes or fancy dress they are in – all mobile phones, money and maps are banned.

Rachael Mittell, of St Elizabeth Hospice, who is organising the Great Xscape, said: “Last year it was fantastic. There were some very ingenious ways of getting back. One team managed to borrow a boat while another managed to get a lift in a car. Almost anything goes and we will ensure a good time is had by all. This will test people to the limit, but it is also fun way of supporting St Elizabeth Hospice.”

There will be prizes for the team which makes it back in the quickest time and for the most creative fancy dress.

Once back at base there will be a buffet to recharge your batteries and a raffle.
