COMMUNITY: Hundreds of Easter Eggs donated to support NSPCC and children in the North West
A kind-hearted fundraiser has donated hundreds of Easter Eggs to the NSPCC, which will go to children and young people in the North West.
Steve Barton is a longstanding supporter of the children’s charity, and collects gifts and donations for children and young people throughout the year.
This week, he dropped off almost 300 Easter Eggs at the NSPCC’s Salford Childline centre, which will be distributed to service centres in the North-West to be given to children and young people who are supported by the charity.
Vickie Butcher, NSPCC community fundraising manager in the region, said: “Steve has been one of our most generous supporters over the years, and we’re incredibly grateful for the Easter Eggs he’s donated this week.
“We’re now one year into the pandemic, and children and young people across the North West and the rest of the country have been suffering throughout that time. With support from people like Steve, and donations like this, our practitioners who are working with young people in the area will be able to offer them a little something to brighten up their Easter.”
Steve said: “Because of the pandemic, things are incredibly tough for so many families right now, so I’m just so determined to do whatever I can to help.
“The people and businesses in Stalybridge have been incredibly generous in donating gifts at Christmas and now eggs for Easter. It’s good to know the wonderful people at the NSPCC are here to help children in the North West, and I hope these Easter will help bring a little joy to families who need it this Easter.”
