Find the Fox in a Box – Summer fun for all!

Posted on

It’s not very often that we have the chance to enjoy the beautiful sights of the UK, even when they are little more than a train journey away. That’s why we gave families the perfect reason for a day out this summer, with the Find the Fox in a Box treasure hunts.

redspottedhanky.com partnered with eight beauty spots to hold the treasure trails across England and Wales. At each event, families took on the challenge of spotting redspottedhanky.com’s character Mr Magic Fox and his three friends; Business Bunny, Penny Pig and Gilbert the Goat.

redspottedhanky.com would like to say a huge thanks to each trust for all their hard work and help at each event. Also, thanks to all the families that found the fox – hope you are using your redspottedhanky.com e-vouchers to discover some more treats around the UK.

Take a closer look at the fun we had below…

We’ll be travelling to some of our favourite nature spots all around England and Wales with our very own Mr Magic Fox this summer.
