AN ANNUAL Easter egg appeal proved a sweet success once again as more than 320 chocolate treats were donated.

The charity drive, which is supported by the Advertiser and Dearne Valley Weekender, saw drop-off points around Rotherham and the Dearne Valley flooded with contributions of eggs, cuddly toys and Easter arts and craft sets.

Led by Mexborough-based Food Aware, the appeal once again saw all donations matched by Denaby Main firm JP Walton & Son Transport.

They were distributed Mexborough Foodbank, Maltby Foodbank, Thorne Moorends Foodbank Doncaster Council’s Stronger Families team, who took over 100 Easter eggs for families they are supporting.

Sean Gibbons, managing director of Food Aware, said: “This is our fourth consecutive Easter campaign and every year it gets bigger. 

“It is great see more local businesses and community partners coming on board to help those less fortunate.”
