The company is offering NHS staff and local business heroes the chance to win free games.

Escape Hunt Reading will offer three local businesses and four local NHS heroes the opportunity to take on one of its indoor, outdoor or remote adventures.

The public can go to Escape Hunt Reading Facebook page and tag an NHS hero who will then be in with the chance to win a free game to enjoy with their household or social bubble.

Each week for the first month of re-opening, Escape Hunt will randomly select a nominated NHS employee to come and enjoy one of its indoor escape rooms, an outdoor adventure or one of its play at home experiences.

From today (July 13) Escape Hunt will also be opening nominations via its Reading Facebook page for the public to nominate local businesses who they feel have made a difference to the community during lockdown and deserve to be rewarded with some escapism and adventure with a free team building game experience.

The business may have adapted to continue serving the local community in new ways, really gone the extra mile during lockdown or volunteered their time to help others whilst the business was closed.

Richard Harpham, CEO Escape Hunt PLC, said: “We are so excited to be opening our doors up to the public again, so that customers can come and enjoy our popular escape rooms and outdoor adventures once again.

Escape Hunt explained the safety of both staff and guests is top priority.
