MEMBERS of Thetford Players have been exploring a new way to play Monopoly.
On Saturday, the players travelled to London to take part in their first ever Monopoly Race. The traditional board game was turned into a fun, real-life version with the aim of raising money for their charity of the year, East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (Each). Speakers Corner in Hyde Park became their GO! spot and the 22 players visited as many places in London featured on the Monopoly board as possible.
The winning group, Fairgate Flyers, reached 26 out of 27 locations. The game lasted five hours and was done in 30C. Their prize, a £50 Amazon voucher, was donated to Each. The fun day raised just under their £1,500 target.
