Dorothy House Hospice giving supporters pumpkin’ to talk about 🎃
This October, Dorothy House is delighted to bring a monster hunt like no other to Bath, Chippenham and Trowbridge.
“Grab your phone and get your little monsters involved!” says the charity.
All you need to do is grab your phone and start at any one of the code locations on your quest to track down all 10 mischievous monsters.
The map is just £5 to download and when you make the purchase, you’ll be entered into a prize draw for a £20 M&S voucher!
This is a fantastic event for families and those looking for a little adventure.
Each QR code you scan will reveal a unique character and jokes along the way (you can decide whether they’re tricks or treats!).
You can also share your progress on social media with your best event selfies! Just click the selfie button as you collect the monsters.
The Monster Halloween Hunt is the most fun and flexible activity you’ll do this autumn! The QR codes are live from 23-31 October so you can make the route fit in with your half term plans.

What is a digital collectable trail?
Digital collectable trails are like the loyalty stamps you collect in cafes, but more rewarding and far more fun. Instead of waiting until your last stamp to get excited about your free Pumpkin Spiced Latte, digital collectable trails give rewards and surprises from start to finish.
Digital stamps are collected when you interact with the QR codes found by the monsters using your mobile phone.
Dorothy House Hospice Care created a Christmas themed collectable trail in December 2020 and 100% of participants found all the ‘Little Helpers’ in Bath, UK.
How do I scan a QR code?
If you have an iPhone with iOS11 or an Android 9 and newer, you can scan QR codes without needing an app.
1. Open the native camera
2. Focus the camera on the QR (but don’t take a photo)
3. Click the pop-up for the QR Hunt experience
Scanning via a QR reader app
For older Android and iPhone handsets, free apps like ‘QR Code Reader by Scan’ are easy to use and self-explanatory.
If you like, remember the general rule for QR codes: If the camera doesn’t scan the QR code then you need a free QR code app.
Create a fundraising trail yourself
