A number of organisations across Goole are teaming up to spread some Easter bunny magic, by collecting Easter Eggs for local children.
The Goole branch of HEY Credit Union has joined forces with Two Rivers Community Pantry, the Goole Times and the Goole branches of Morrisons and McDonalds to make this Easter extra sweet for hundreds of children across the area. Each organisation will be acting as a drop off point for residents to donate Easter treats, which will then be distributed to local families ahead of the bank holiday weekend. Residents are invited to support the appeal by adding an extra egg to their trolley while doing their weekly shop in the coming weeks, and drop it off at any one of the drop off points across the town before Tuesday, April 4.
The eggs will be distributed to families who also benefit from the Goole Toy Appeal, which is organised annually by the credit union and partner organisations. Craig Thomas, deputy editor of the Goole Times said: “We are thrilled to be supporting the Goole Community Easter Egg Appeal to help spread some Easter joy to families across our area. “Adding an extra egg to your basket will only cost a couple pounds, but will certainly bring a huge smile to a local child’s face this Easter.” A number of organisations across Goole are collecting Easter Eggs for local children.
