The Monster Hero Safari story trail is to visit Falkirk’s High Street on Friday, July 31, giving visitors a fun reason to head to the area while contributing to a cause which hopes to coin in more than £100,000 for the NHS.

Using near field communications (NFC), those with NFC-enabled phones can hold it up to a hero’s belly and read their story.

Attractions will be kept in independent and charity retailers and public venues.

Entry costs £2 and players can add a voluntary donation which will go to NHS Charities Together.

After finding all ten heroes, families will receive a free e-book about their first adventure.

The project is being run with a keen eye on safety and the safari will be set out so that players can only interact with the heroes in small family groups whilst adhering to social distancing.

Charlie Langhorne, co-founder and managing director of Wild in Art, said: “Wild in Art is delighted to be supporting Monster Hero Safari.

“Bringing a sense of fun, bringing a smile and bringing people together is at the heart of what we do, so we are thrilled that this initiative brings a new and innovative way for families to rediscover and explore the high street. We hope everyone will enjoy it!”
