With Easter almost here, there’s still time to donate to the St Helens Easter Egg Appeal 2018 for children in need across the borough.
Last year’s ‘egg-celent’ effort saw a ‘cracking’ 1500 Easter eggs donated and it is hoped this year’s appeal can collect event more.
Residents looking to get involved can drop off their Easter eggs at a number of public buildings around the town.
· St Helens Baptist Church, Hall Street – Thursdays, 11am to 2pm and Saturdays, 10am to 1pm
· St Helens Town Hall reception – weekdays, 9am to 5pm
· Wesley House – weekdays, 9am to 5pm
· Atlas House – weekdays, 9am to 5pm
· Peasley Cross URC – Sundays, 11am to 1pm and Tuesdays, 10am to 12pm
· Any St Helens library – opening times: www.sthelens.gov.uk/libraries/
Encouraging kind-hearted residents to get involved in the appeal, St Helens Council’s Cabinet Member for Community Safety and Housing, Councillor Lisa Preston said: “Our annual Easter egg appeal has been a huge success since it first launched, with thousands of treats donated.
“However, the sad truth is that many children and young people in our borough face waking up on Easter Sunday without a treat, so I’d encourage anyone who can help to do what they can in order to bring some much needed joy into these youngsters lives.”
Donations will be accepted up until Thursday 29 March.
