Challenge Anneka-style event showcases Newark’s independent shops

Posted onPosted on 6th Sep

Two of Newark’s independent businesses helped to put the spotlight on some of their fellow independents in the town in a unique event.

Les Jones, director of Inizio Hair, and Francesca Tricarico, director of Future Cloud, dashed around the town, calling in on around a dozen businesses, dressed in shell suits just like the inspiration of their challenge – TV’s Anneka Rice, of 80s television show Treasure Hunt.

They were filmed by Kevin Guthrie, of Guthrie Therapy, as the event was streamed live on Facebook.

Among the dashing duo’s stop-offs was London Eye Bespoke Eyewear, Honeytrap Lingerie, Soup Dwagon, Sweatpea Flowers, Lace Boutique and Grace Gentle.

Les said: “We love Newark… a big thank you to everyone that supported us, and helped us shout about how great Newark is.”
