Ed Felix, a year 10 pupil at Cardiff High School, set up a Treasure Hunt to raise funds for the Amelia Trust Farm. 

Ed, who volunteers in the Farm Café, was inspired by the work of the Farm to set up the fundraiser as part of his Welsh Baccalaureate Community Challenge.  Ed who, recently started volunteering at the Farm, quickly realised that the Farm would be a perfect place to hold a treasure hunt. 

Ed wrote to some local businesses and organisations requesting prize donations.  He then developed a series of clever clues that lead participants all over the Farm to hunt for letters that, when re-arranged, spelt out a word.  Participants enter their completed sheets into a prize draw.  All participants pay an entry fee for the treasure hunt and all the proceeds raised will help us continue the important work we do supporting vulnerable and disadvantaged young people.

Ed is keen that other people take the initiative and do some fund raising for the Amelia Trust Farm and he hopes that his story will inspire others to follow in his footsteps.

“I enjoyed visiting the Amelia Trust Farm when I was younger with my family.  It is a great place to visit for people young and old, and by visiting you are supporting the work that the Farm does helping young people.  I enjoy volunteering here as the people who visit here, the volunteers and the staff are all really nice.  I thought that organising a treasure hunt would be a good way to raise extra money for the Farm.  I hope that other people will follow in my footsteps and do some fundraising for the farm or become a volunteer”.

If you have been inspired by Ed’s story and would like to do some fundraising for the Amelia Trust Farm we would love to hear from you!   

Huge thanks to Asda, Barry and S4C for the prize donations!
