MBL Financial, the Isle of Man based IFA, is launching an Island-wide treasure hunt at the Southern District Agricultural Show in which its piggy bank mascot, MBL Morris, will call on residents to help him find treasure hidden by his long-lost ancestor. Following a series of clues due to be launched across the company’s website and aired on 3FM, the hunt will culminate with the winner being awarded £500 and £500 for their chosen charity.
Commenting on the initiative, John Shields who is a mortgage advisor for MBL Financial said: “As we’ve seen from the latest Pokemon craze, there’s something universal about the fun of a treasure hunt. We launched our Help MBL Morris campaign as a way to bring the whole family together for an enjoyable outdoor activity for the summer. Our ultimate winners will triumph using analytical nous to crack the clues, local knowledge of the Island and a healthy dose of competitive spirit to get out and about – we can’t wait for the results.
“Anyone who wants to get involved can visit us at the show, our offices or see more details on our website www.mbl.co.im. Oh, and do capture pictures of Morris as you see him around the Island – there’s nothing imaginary about him.”
