A BIG thank you to everyone that donated Easter Eggs to a very worthwhile cause!
The response for Easter egg donation has been brilliant. For the past two weeks we have been asking for Easter egg donations to a very worthwhile cause! St. Oswald’s Hospice provides specialist hospice care for local adults, young people and children. It is a charity that values the life of each person and is committed to excellence in Specialist Palliative Care.
The philosophy defines the values of the organization for patients, families, carers, and all those involved in its work. At Easter, the tradition is that the Easter bunny leaves Easter eggs on Easter Sunday. Parents hide eggs in the garden and the children go on an egg hunt to find them. So instead of an Easter egg hunt we took the Eggs to children not well enough to participate in all the fun.
Wherever possible the eggs were donated directly to the children at the hospice, but in some instances the children at St Oswald’s were not well enough to accept Chocolate, but in that case, the Easter eggs were donated to their siblings who will also be having a very tough time, so all in all a very worthwhile cause.
Amy Slater, Fundraiser Coordinator for St. Oswald’s Hospice came to pick up all the Eggs from the Hub. Together we counted an amazing 135 Easter eggs donated from around the park!
