Children at East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) in Milton, have been enjoying some chocolate treats this Easter, courtesy of one East Anglian firm.
Staff and customers at the Ridgeons branch in Nuffield Road, Cambridge, donated two wheelbarrows’ worth of Easter eggs to the charity.
Mark Johnson, the Nuffield Road Branch Manager, said: “We’re delighted to have gathered over one hundred chocolate eggs for EACH’s hospice in Milton.
“I’d like to thank our fantastic customers for their generosity and, and my team for supporting this collection alongside their busy jobs.”
Kellie Charge, Corporate Fundraiser for EACH, commented: “We would like to thank the staff at Ridgeons and their customers for all of their efforts in collecting this delightful Easter gift for the hospice.”
The donation of eggs is in addition to Ridgeons’ company-wide fundraising for EACH, its current charity partner. Since the two-year partnership launched one year ago, the business is already on track to beat its target of £30,000.
