Hollie Evans went all out this year to organise an Easter egg hunt for her friends and family, and by doing so raised £86.77! The sun came out as the children hunted high and low for the hidden chocolate eggs, bounced on the bouncy castle, played in the sand pit and got sticky with some arts and crafts. Everyone had a fantastic time! Thank you to Hollie and everyone who donated. The funds have been allocated to our Memory Maker Appeal for 2014.
This year we collected more Easter eggs, sweets and toys than we ever have before and they've all be sent out to hospitals and hospices in the local area.
