'X' DID indeed mark the spot as eager treasure hunters raised �129 for charity on Sunday.

The 'walking treasure hunt', which began at the Clipper Pub on the Strand, was in aid of Handicapped Children's Pilgrimage Trust (HCPT).

The charity takes children with a variety of disabilities on a 'pilgrimage' to spend Easter at Lourdes in France.

Children with learning, physical or emotional problems are taken each year.

Organiser Carol Rowe said: "The �129 that was raised will help towards the cost of taking 12 local children with a variety of disabilities, to Lourdes in France next Easter.
