The Easter break can be a time to spend with loved ones, celebrate religious festivities and
of course indulge in all the wonderful chocolate that surrounds this holiday season.
Not everyone is so lucky to be able to spend this time at home with their families. So to create a little cheer for those that can’t, Val Saunders, Permitting Officer for CVU, decided to start a collection of Easter eggs for children at the Richard House Children’s Hospice to ensure that everyone, including their siblings, could share in the Easter egg-citement.
Over the last two weeks, CVU staff have been busily collecting an egg-strordinary 160 Easter eggs which were delivered to the children by our Emergency Response Unit on Thursday morning. The charity and children were delighted with the egg-cellent donation from CVU.
“The donation of so many Easter eggs by CVU to our hospice is incredibly thoughtful. It is wonderful to have such support from the local community. We have a lot of families coming in over the Easter holidays, especially for family support activities and I know the eggs will bring smiles to children’s and families’ faces.” Tracie Dempster, Director of Family and Care Services, Richard House.
“Val’s kind thoughts and enthusiasm have ensured a number of children who will not be at home this Easter will be able to share in the joy that Easter brings, and get very messy with some chocolate too!” Matt Wilson, Network Manager, CVU
CVU will work closely with Richard House on future engagement opportunities as well as
other charities in the community.
