Hundreds of children in the local area will have a special treat this Easter after over 300 Chocolate Eggs were delivered to them recently.
The Easter Eggs were the result of the 2nd Annual Easter Egg Appeal by Richmond Village Nantwich, CAT Radio and Sainsburys Nantwich who, together with staff from Winsford Police Headquarters and Custom Powders in Crewe, collected the grand total of 312 eggs. The eggs were shared between the Wingate Centre, the Nantwich Children’s Support centre and The Children’s Ward at Leighton Hospital, all of whom were extremely grateful for the generosity shown by everyone who so kindly helped with the Appeal.
Nicola Tooke, Village Advisor at Richmond Village together with Olwyn Poynton from Sainsburys, who is also South Cheshire and Cat Radio’s Community Volunteer of the Year, joined Cat Radio’s Claire Faulkner, Stephanie Heath and Jason Griffiths and their mascot “Twitchy” to deliver the eggs bringing smiles to staff and children alike.
Lynne Griffin, Village Manager at Richmond Village said “This is the second year that this Appeal has taken place and we are absolutely delighted that so many eggs were collected. Residents, staff and the general public have been wonderful in their support although it has been very difficult resisting the temptation to actually eat one of the eggs, especially when we have been surrounded by so many!”
