Welcome to

The Big Charity Rock Hunt

In Coventry on Easter Sunday


For Helping us to Raise Over


At The 2022 Big Charity Rock Hunt!
See You Next Year!


What's It All About?

Inspired by the wishes of Isla 'Smiler' Tansey to share love and fun through painted stones, a group of friends and volunteers come together to organise The Big Charity Rock Hunt. We paint and hide thousands of stones in the stunning garden and grounds at Russells Garden Centre in Coventry.

Rock painters all over the UK send us their stones to hide, and on the day, families, old and young come and enjoy hunting for the hidden stones and special prizes.

All monies donated go straight to Childrens Cancer charities. In 2019 around £4000 was raised.


Our Causes

The Big Charity Rock Hunt is an annual event supporting research into Childhood Cancer therapies


The Islastones Foundation

DIPG is an incurable, fast-growing cancer affecting children and young people. The Islastones Foundation is dedicated to raising funds for DIPG research, for kinder, more effective treatments, and one day, a cure. In memory of Isla 'Smiler' Tansey

“Get out of bed and start hiding stones!”
