Our thanks also go to Morrisons for allowing us to raise funds at their store, without whom we could not have achieved this.

2nd Bracknell Explorers conquer the Monopoly Challenge 2012

26 teams of Explorers from the South of England arrived in London on the 3rd March to take part in the Monopoly Challenge 2012.

Pictured are the four teams of Olympian Explorers from 2nd Bracknell who walked (or jogged) and rode on public transport to race around the monopoly locations of our capital city, buying property and completing a quiz as they went. They gathered at the end of the day aboard The Lord Amory in the docklands for a well deserved meal and competition results. They were delighted when positive attitude, great team work and dedication paid off as the teams came 10th, 9th, 3rd and 1st in the competition.
