HARTLEPOOL’S Middleton Grange Shopping Centre is appealing to customers to support its annual Easter egg appeal in aid of Harbour women’s refuge.
Centre staff have teamed up with the refuge to make sure every child it works with receives a treat this Easter.
For over 30 years the refuge has helped people in Hartlepool and the surrounding areas in times of crisis and difficulty.
Danielle Chadwick from Harbour said: “Any donation of Easter eggs would be kindly appreciated to assist us in ensuring that every child that we work with gets an egg this Easter.
“We are keen to ensure that we make refuge stays for children as pleasurable as possible under the circumstances we rely heavily on the public’s kind donations at such times”
Mark Rycraft, Middleton Grange centre manager, said: “As most of us are preparing to spend time with our families and friends over Easter and enjoy indulging in lots of chocolate and treats it is important to also take the time to help people who may not be so fortunate.
“We ask anyone that can afford to buy an extra egg to do so and donate it to the Harbour Refuge.”
Shoppers can drop their eggs off at the centre’s customer services desk from now until Good Friday on April 3.
