Southampton branch helps gather 5,000 Easter eggs for disadvantaged children

A big thank-you to Gary Casey and everyone at Pickfords’ Southampton branch for all their hard work this Easter, delivering and installing dozens of Easter egg collection points throughout Hampshire before collecting and distributing the donated chocolate eggs to disadvantaged children across the area.

IMG_0907Southern radio station Wave 105’s ‘Cash for Kids’ Easter Appeal saw a record 5,000 Easter eggs delivered to under-privileged children across the south, giving each of them a little bit of happiness during the Easter period.

Gary and his team worked tirelessly to ensure collection boxes were delivered in good time and the donated eggs distributed in time for Easter.

Gloria Hill, Charity Manager at Wave 105, was quick to thank the team for their efforts:

“A big thank you to Gary and all the staff for supporting our 2015 Egg Appeal; we raised 2,000 eggs over last year’s target. Please pass on our thanks to Laurie and all the guys in the warehouse and office.”

Well done to all involved.
