Seventy children joined in and were sent scouring the park for Easter egg tickets.

Each year the event is organised by Flinders Founders, a group of 11 to 19 year old volunteers who are dedicated to making Donington a better place for other young people.

Following the hunt there were free refreshments baked by the volunteers, a chocolate tombola and a ‘guess the number of eggs in the basket’ competition. A total of £208 was raised which will go into the upkeep and development of the Flinders Founders Teen Park, on Town Dam Lane, Donington.

Margaret Wright, Flinders Founders secretary, said: “It went really, really well.

“It was raining in the morning but it stopped as we were about to start the treasure hunt.”
