GENEROUS carvery staff and customers have collected nearly 80 Easter eggs for poorly children — and there is still time to join in.
Staff at the Toby Carvery at Mushroom roundabout in Dalton will be handing over the treats to the children's ward at Rotherham Hospital on Good Friday.
The assortment, which was only started in March, already numbers 78 eggs by the start of this week and staff said the branch would continue accepting donations at the Sycamore drive restaurant throughout this week.
Team leader Tanya Oldham (33), of Stag Crescent, and other team members will present the eggs to the hospital’s children’s ward.
David Munroe (53) general manager said: "We are always happy as a team to support local charities.
"Even though we are a nationwide brand, my team are all from Rotherham and we want to do stuff for the town.
"It is a novel way to help a great cause.”
It is not the first time that the pub, which was opened in 2015, has donated to charities in the area.
Over £300 was raised for Rotherham Hospice in an event celebrating the carvery’s first birthday last October.
