I had fairly high eggspectations for this egg hunt. If you ever wanted to be an Easter bunny, and would like to raise some money for charity on the way, then the Big Egg Hunt by Fabergé is for you. Not only is this a good excuse to wander about the city but as an eggstra incentive, if you collect all 209, you could win a diamond jubilee Fabergé egg worth £100,000. The only caveat is that playing will cost you a £3 initial donation, followed by 25p for every following egg that you text in.
Completing the whole egg-cercise would set you back around £55, which could seem a bit eggstortionate but remember all proceeds go to Elephant Family and Action for Children charities. The giant eggs are hidden all over London from Canary Wharf to the South Bank and having (nearly) completed the Covent Garden hunt, I have to say that finding them is actually quite tough and can get your brain a tad scrambled. Each egg has its own unique design, whether it be a polar bear for the National Geographic egg or opulent gold for the Ritz. The eggs will be out and about until April 1 so get cracking.
