Mason’s Funeral Directors, in Park Road, which is part of the Dignity group, received 59 donations of the chocolate treats for its latest Easter Egg Appeal.

They have been given to charities Harbour, which works with families and individuals affected by abuse, and Hartlepool Special Needs Support Group, which supports children and young people living with disabilities.

The eggs were donated by generous local businesses, community groups and residents for the appeal which first launched 20 years ago.
