Young prospectors will be able to pan for their fortune on The Moor tomorrow.

From 11am to 4pm, kids aged 12 and under are invited to have a go at gold panning in return for a £1 donation to Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

Kids can use genuine pans from America to get hands-on experience of the technique to search for iron pyrite - known as ‘fool’s gold’ - instead of gold.

Treasure hunters will also be given tips on how to separate the valuable fragments from the dirty water - and can take home whatever they find.
