We have had an incredible response to this year’s Easter Egg campaign, receiving a record amount of chocolate Easter eggs for our supported children and young people to enjoy over Easter.

Thanks to everyone's efforts, hard work, and generosity we’re delighted to announce that ALL our supported children and young people will receive a chocolate Easter egg this year. 

Overwhelmed by the support we’ve received from members of the local community, especially from the local business community; we would like to say a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has been busy collecting Easter Eggs on our behalf.

And we would like to say a few special Thank You Shout Outs to the following:
