Easter celebrations for families

HARTLEPOOL Families First is holding its annual Easter extravaganza tomorrow.

A giant Easter bunny and some smaller live bunnies will be visiting the charity’s Greatham Street base for the fun-filled event between noon and 4pm.

The Easter celebration is one of the charity’s main fundraisers and is vital to its finances.

The bumper day is part of an annual fundraising calendar to help swell the coffers of the much-needed charity and organisers are urging everyone to back the Easter bunny event and help the charity maintain the wide-ranging services it provides on a daily basis.

Easter-themed arts and craft sessions will also be on throughout the day while children can have fun decorating their own Easter eggs and making Easter bunny ears.

There will be a variety of stalls set up by the town’s local sellers where people can purchase charms, hand-crafted bags, body lotions and a wide range of other gifts.

Refreshments and home-made cakes will be available all day.

Adults get in for free and there is a £3 charge for children to cover the visit of the Easter bunnies and the cost of the eggs.
