Where is Ruby the Reindeer today? Make a note of the first letter and check back tomorrow for your next clue.

This resort TOWN in Essex is famous for having the world’s longest pleasure pier. Electric trains began running the length of the pier at the end of the 19th century, and you can still hop on one today. This is also the seaside resort where our late founders Joan and Patrick Laurance once spent a much-needed short break, prompting them to launch the charity all those years ago.

Don’t let that seagull steal your fish supper, Ruby!
