Eggs-tremely happy with eggs appeal

SHOPPERS have been thanked for their eggs-tremely overwhelming generosity in cheering up Easter for children of domestic violence victims.

Bosses at Middleton Grange Shopping Centre say 46 chocolate eggs were handed in to the centre’s Easter Egg appeal, which saw the chocolate treats donated to children at the Harbour Women’s Refuge.

A cardboard cut-out Easter egg containing tags with names of youngsters at the refuge was stationed in the centre and people could pick a tag and buy an egg for the corresponding child.

Their gifts have helped to brighten up the Easter period for the families.

Centre manager Mark Rycraft said: “We were overwhelmed with the response and the fact that all the name tags disappeared so quickly.

“This is an initiative that we started three or four years ago and it goes from strength to strength.

“It’s really nice and makes you proud.”
