A PRIZE of £500 is up for grabs in a charity treasure quest being launched by the Mayor of Huntingdon, Councillor Jennifer Sarabia, on Monday.

The quest is based on the history of Huntingdon and marks the anniversary of Oliver Cromwell's death and the start of the Second World War in Britain.

Treasure hunters will tackle clues in six separate sections, each costing £5 or £20 for the lot. A new one will be released every two weeks.

Cllr Sarabia said: "The purpose of the treasure quest is to help promote the town, encourage people to be more aware of their surroundings and raise funds for the charity."

Each section has a £75 prize for the winner. Anyone who enters all six sections will be entered into the grand draw with a chance of winning £500.
