Canonteign Falls is included in the New South Devon MONOPOLY game launched by Rowcroft Hospice this September
4 August 2022
Rowcroft Hospice has teamed up with Winning Moves, a subsidiary of Hasbro, and more than 40 iconic locations, venues and businesses to develop a special MONOPOLY South Devon & Torbay Edition that showcases many of the region’s stunning local tourist attractions. Produced in celebration of Rowcroft’s 40th anniversary and to raise vital funds for the hospice, the bespoke game is a unique twist on the original MONOPOLY, featuring dozens of local attractions, including Canonteign Falls, the Princess Theatre, Newton Abbot Racecourse, Kents Cavern, Woodlands, Pennywell Farm, Paignton Zoo, and taking poll-positions in the Mayfair and Park Lane spots Thurlestone Hotel and Powderham Castle.
“We’re delighted to have been selected by Hasbro to develop this localised edition where players travel around South Devon visiting fabulous local attractions in a fun and exciting game that’s a firm favourite with all the family,” says Rowcroft Hospice’s CEO Mark Hawkins. “The development of this game is a timely initiative as it coincides with our 40th anniversary year, and is a fitting celebration of our four decades of caring for our community. In addition, it provides a ground-breaking new income stream for the hospice to support patients with life-limiting illnesses across South Devon.”
Priced at £30, the new MONOPOLY game can be pre-ordered from Rowcroft’s website at www.rowcrofthospice.org.uk/monopoly and it will be available to purchase in Rowcroft’s shops across South Devon from early September. ‘Devon’s Top Attractions’ is supplying two ‘golden tickets’ that will be hidden within two games. Each lucky golden ticket winner will receive a whole year of free days out (worth £2000) with free entry to over 30 South Devon attractions for up to four people.
