Making Easter egg-citing for all!

Are you ready for Easter?

Many of our stores have donated Easter Eggs and other chocolatey goodness to local groups and great causes to help them fund raise in the run up to the Bank Holiday weekend, and we’ve even gone out and about to reach a few other great causes too!

We visited Parkwood Academy in Melbourne (main picture) to present them with over 250 Cadbury’s Creme Eggs to ensure all pupils received some form of Easter treat this year. We then boosted the school’s attendance records by providing a further 50 larger eggs as part of their Attendance Awards programme. Headteacher, Mrs Cracknell, was thrilled!

Another beneficiary was Marie Hyland from the Galleywood Heritage Centre (centre) who has arranged a huge Easter Bunny Hunt for the children of Chelmsford. We provided over 500 Cadbury’s Creme Eggs which will form part of a larger prize of goodies for each of the children who complete the Hunt, which itself is a part of a larger day of celebrations, activities and face-painting. For more information, check out their events page here.

Happy Easter, from everyone at Chelmsford Star Co-op!
