Council's Highways Team are Easter bunnies for children in hospital
24 March 2016Cheshire West and Chester Council staff have helped their Highways contractor, Ringway, make chocolate Easter wishes come true for children in hospital this Easter.
Almost 150 chocolate Easter eggs have been donated by staff from the two organisations. They will be given to children who will be in the Countess of Chester Hospital and St Luke’s Hospice, in Winsford, during the Easter celebrations this weekend.
The original plan was to collect around 50 eggs but staff gave generously to the appeal for egg donations and almost trebled that figure.
Councillor Brian Clarke, Cabinet Member for Economic Development and Infrastructure said: “I’m delighted that our partnership working with Ringway has resulted in such a positive action to help the local community this Easter. Staff from both organisations have been extremely generous and I’d like to thank everyone who organised the collection. I believe transporting all the eggs was quite a challenge!”
