Your Chance to Become a Spy for a Day!

Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity have teamed up with ESPIONAGE MANCHESTER to offer a groundbreaking urban challenge event that transforms friends, families and colleagues into teams of special agents for a day. They take part in a race to complete a secret mission and raise funds for Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity. Teams have to complete a hi-tech mission involving a series of location-based challenges around Manchester city centre. Each challenge that they complete successfully wins a team territory, with the team that secures the most territory being declared the winner. The teams’ progress through the challenges will be monitored by high tech satellite equipment with updates beamed out to other participants, who are each equipped with special handsets. The Urban Challenge event is suited to people of all sorts of abilities, with the tasks ranging from brain teasers, to clue solving, to physical trials – there’s something for everyone! It’s a great way to improve teamwork and communication – and it’s a great day out! The Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity Espionage mission takes place in Manchester city centre on Sunday 18th April 2010 and lasts for approximately four hours. To take part, each team needs a minimum of six participants. There is a £10 registration fee per participant and a minimum suggested sponsorship of £75 per team member.
