Lucky youngsters benefit from Bob’s Easter hard work


BIG-HEARTED Bob Kapur had a busy Saturday night out laying hundreds of Easter eggs and chocolate bunnies for lucky kids to find.

The grandad from Clifton led a team of volunteers hiding 450 chocolate treats in spots like Clifton Park, Swinton’s Pottery Ponds and Herringthorpe Playing Fields, before posting clues online to help youngsters track them down.

Bob, who shelled out for the chocolates himself, said he had been inspired by the Rotherham Rocks craze for hiding and finding painted stones which swept the borough in 2019, and by Look for a Book, which encourages young readers to keep their eyes peeled for books left in public places.

“My wife and I thought it would be great to do the same with Easter eggs,” he said.

“It was a bit of a last-minute idea but thankfully we had a team of willing volunteers to help us reach a wide area.”

Bob said he had received positive feedback from some of the lucky egg-hunters who had solved his clues but believed many of the chocolate delights still remained unfound.

He added: “We used to do egg hunts in our garden when our children were young so it’s good to keep that tradition going.”
