HOW well do you know Salisbury? This charity quiz is the perfect way to test your knowledge while raising much needed funds.

The Salisbury Bear Hunt & 800 Quiz, organised by Salisbury’s Save the Children branch, returns this month.

Hidden in shop windows across Salisbury city centre are 100 cuddly bears with clues about the history of the city, buildings, people and trades.

Members of the public are invited to explore the city centre looking for clues and answer as many of the 100 questions as they can.

Free entry forms can be collected from Salisbury Information Centre, Waterstones and Salisbury Library. Alternatively, they can be downloaded here.

Deadline to answer the questions is August 30.

Completed entry forms can be posted in the Bear Box at Salisbury Information Centre.

The event is free, but donations are welcomed and can be made via the Bear Box in Salisbury Information Centre.

All money raised will support Save the Children’s work with families affected by Covid-19 in refugee camps, where hand washing and social distancing is impossible.

Salisbury BID has funded the printing of the entry forms.

Su Lycett, organiser of the Salisbury Bear Hunt & 800 Quiz, said: “We had really exciting plans for this year as part of the Salisbury 2020 celebrations, but sadly because of the pandemic we’ve had to scale back our fundraising activities. But we’re delighted we’ve been able to go ahead with the popular bear hunt and quiz.

“We hope the public enjoy exploring the city to find the 100 bears and clues hidden in shop windows and finding out more about Salisbury’s history.

“Thank you to Salisbury BID for their support with the Salisbury Bear Hunt & 800 Quiz; it’s meant we’ve been able to keep it free for people to take part in.”
