Here are some quotes from charities we've donated eggs to:
A big thank you to all the listeners of Mix96 for their kind donations of easter eggs. Our customers who have received these donations have been most grateful as these are things that they may not be able to provide for their children.
The eggs donated through the kindness and generosity of Mix96 and its listeners will help spread some Springtime joy to every sick child our Florrie’s Children’s Team help care for – currently 40 families across Aylesbury Vale – often ‘round the clock’. This lovely treat will help bring a bit of sunshine to their day - not only to the sick child who will be thrilled to receive a chocolate Easter egg to perhaps share with a brother or sister but to the entire family.
The eggs very generously donated by listeners of Mix96 will be used in a children’s tombola at our National Conference, something for the children to take part in as part of their special childcare programme of fun and activities. For many of our children, given the many demands on family life, the fun of the tombola and the toys they will win will bring great enjoyment.
