YOUNGSTERS from under-privileged backgrounds will be tucking into chocolate this Easter thanks to the generosity of customers at a Wisbech travel firm.
The Co-operative Travel, based at Beales in Church Terrace, staged their fourth annual Easter egg appeal and were delighted with the response from people happy to hand over the chocolate treats.
Assistant Manager Harriet Secker, explained the egg appeal follows the same format as the hugely successful Santa’s Suitcase appeal run at Christmas in conjunction with the Citizen in support of the local Salvation Army.
The Salvation Army runs the appeal asking for donations which they then pass on to Social Services and other organisations involved with youngsters in care or from under-privileged backgrounds for distribution.
The eggs were handed over the Wisbech Salvation Army leader Major Rob Smart on Wednesday ready for the ‘Easter Bunny’ to deliver to children on Sunday.
