A SHOPPING centre manager and charity representative hopes people will shell out for an Easter event in aid of a young cancer sufferer.

Mark Rycraft, manager of Hartlepool’s Middleton Grange Shopping Centre and spokesman for Bradley Lowery’s Fight Against Neuroblastoma, is appealing for people to donate chocolate eggs to be used as prizes in a forthcoming Easter Egg hunt.

It will take place on a day to be confirmed over the Easter weekend, at a venue yet to be confirmed. It follows a similar event held at Blackhall Cricket Club last year in aid of two-year-old Bradley, from the village.

Mark said: “It was run last year and was immensely successful and we are doing the same again.

“There is an entry fee and children go and find the Easter eggs and every child will take away their own Easter egg. We would like as many chocolate eggs as possible as there will be hundreds of children involved.”

The shopping centre is donating 600 mini chocolate eggs for the hunt.

The eggs can be dropped off at the shopping centre customer service desk or the Giant Steps Nursery, at Blackhall Children’s Centre, in Middle Street.
