Thank you to The Five Bells, Colne Engaine

31 December 2019

Thank you to The Five Bells, Colne Engaine. They hosted the annual Boxing Day Barrel Hunt and managed to raise just under £500 to be donated to the Essex & Herts Air Ambulance.

This is the 17th year the event has been running and supporting EHAAT, having raised in excess of £9,500 since the events inception!

The aim of the Barrel Hunt is for the competitors is to find hidden beer barrels on a set route around the village of Colne Engaine, starting and finishing at the Five Bells Colne Engaine. The event was generously sponsored by The Five Bells, Adnams Brewery, Winefantastic, Bookers Cash and Carry and Tidy Gardens.

The attendees were able to catch our helicopter in action as it made a brief fly past during training!


Thank you for your support, we can’t fly without you.
