Suffolk resident's 'egged-on' to support local causes this Easter

In this section

This spring East of England Co-op Funeral Services is asking Suffolk residents to donate any spare or unwanted Easter eggs to support local causes.

The chocolate eggs, which are being collected in funeral branches across the region, will be donated to food banks, hospitals and hospices as part of the East of England Co-op Funeral Services continued support for local communities.

Colleagues at East of England Co-op funeral branches will also be working with local schools to create colourful Easter window displays to encourage donations and bring communities together.

Emily Houghton, East of England Co-op Funeral Services area manager, said: “Chocolate eggs might be small, but these donations can go a long way in bringing a smile to the face of people in our communities who may be going through a difficult time. We encourage anyone who can to pop in and make a donation.”

Andrew Dawes, head of specialist retail at East of England Co-op Funeral Services, said: “Our funeral branches play an important role in communities.  We hope that by joining in with our Easter egg collections, local residents see that we are a supportive and approachable part of the community whatever the circumstances.”
