Eggs for every child thanks to the BFY Easter Bunny!

They’ve done it again – thanks to another incredible response from the community, the Business for Youth (BFY) volunteers have delivered chocolate eggs to every primary school child in Newton-le-Willows for Easter.

The BFY volunteers have been busy collecting, sorting and delivering the eggs, which have been donated by local businesses and individuals in recent weeks.

In total more than 2,500 eggs were donated to make this incredible gesture happen. They have been enjoyed by primary children in the town, all of whom were thrilled to receive a visit from the Easter Bunny and his team!

Writing on their Facebook page, Business for Youth said: “Our Easter egg appeal, not only gives a chocolate egg to each primary school child, plus all pupils and students at Willow Bank and Wargrave House School.

“It creates a wonderful community ambience, where many come together to help support what we do. We owe a great depth of gratitude to all the businesses and residents that enabled us to give out 2490 Easter eggs.

“We are so proud of what we do and so very proud of the community that supports us.”

Thanks also went to St Helens Police who helped deliver the Easter eggs to schools, as well as local businesses and other organisations who helped the appeal.

It’s another example of just how strong the community spirit is here in Newton-le-Willows.

Well done to everyone who got involved – you have certainly put lots of smiles on faces this Easter.
