Blantyre Annual Easter Egg Appeal

T’was the night before an Easter Miracle! Tomorrow, Saturday 3rd April is the culmination of many weeks of effort to ensure all children in Blantyre get a fantastic Easter Egg!

The Easter Egg appeal has been a tremendous success with over 3800 donated eggs being distributed all over Blantyre to hundreds of kids. Many people have come together to make this EGGSTRA special!

Co-ordinated kindly and efficiently by Blantyre resident Sharon McCafferty and her team, the endeavour has seen many residents and businesses all playing their part . From the West End Bar shown here storing the eggs and printing off labels, also providing gift vouchers, the pub was also used as a drop off centre for donations, so well done Jamie, Jon & the full team.

Special thanks also have to go out to Joseph Potts, The Village Bar, Avril Keenan and Jacks of Blantyre for their kindness. Also not forgetting the hundreds of very kind street volunteers and volunteer delivery drivers, including hundreds of people who donated to make this all possible!

Our kids have all had a tough year, so anything that can put a smile on their faces at this time is sincerely appreciated by all. There’s going to be a LOT of happy kids this weekend! SO heartwarming to see and a marvellous example of community spirit and togetherness. Well done to everybody involved.
