Easter eggs for foodbanks
Published on: 02 May 2017
DOZENS of Easter eggs were handed to foodbanks by Circadian Trust, which operates South Gloucestershire’s leisure centres.
The 139 eggs were donated by potential new members at the centres, including those in Kingswood, Yate, Longwell Green and Bradley Stoke, in return for a reduced joining fee.
They were distributed to charities including North Bristol foodbank, Resound foodbank, The Juice Community Project, Thornbury Baptist Church foodbank and Yate and Chipping Sodbury foodbank in time for the Easter weekend.
Erica Cross, Marketing Manager at Circadian Trust, said:“Food banks rely on donations to help local people in crisis and at Easter time it’s nice to be able to give a little something to families who wouldn’t normally have the pleasure of an Easter egg. We are delighted to be able to support other local charities and at the same time encourage more people to start a healthier, active lifestyle by joining our leisure centres.”
