Cracking way to raise hospice cash

AN EASTER egg standing 3ft tall and weighing a whopping 7kg is up for grabs in a charity raffle.

Andrew Hughes (34), managing director of Dinnington-based Elysium GRP Limited, hopes to raise more than £1,000 for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.

The chocolate egg was bought from Nonnas Deli in Broom and will be given away on Good Friday at the hospice.

“I thought it was a crazy idea that people can get behind,” said Andrew, of Church Lane, Dinnington.

“We have the target of raising £1,000, but really any amount is great.

“We just want to raise as much as we can.”

Elysium, a building firm and kitchen fitters, is also a member of the Bluebell 365 business club, a scheme in which businesses pay a £365 membership fee in support of the hospice.

The company also donates a percentage of sales proceeds to the charity.

The egg is being stored at their kitchen showroom. 

Raffle tickets cost £1 from Elysium at Unit 5, Monksbridge Trading Estate, Outgang Lane, Dinnington.
