“It’s another generous donation that will hopefully give children a lot of pleasure and keep them busy during their school holidays” – EACH receives a bumper supply of Easter goodies  

Charity shop customers have the chance to get crafty thanks to a bumper donation of Easter goodies. Items including card-making packs, foam magnets and photo frames and sand art kits have been donated to Attleborough’s East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) store by Ipswich-based Sew Pro Crafts.

The company bought stock from another firm that had gone into administration and offered it to the EACH shop on Queens Square. Manager Leanne McGeachin said: “It’s another generous donation from Sew Pro Crafts, following hot on the heels of the goodies they kindly gave us at Christmas.

“Thanks to them, we’ve got lots of supplies that will hopefully give children a lot of pleasure and keep them busy during their school holidays. They’re affordable and friendly on the purse and wallet, which is ideal in these challenging times.

“We’re also going to be giving out free make-your-own bunny masks at the till so everyone – children and adults alike – can get in the Easter spirit.”

The EACH shop is running an Easter tombola from 1st to 15th April. Customers will have the chance to buy a ticket and be in with a chance of winning Easter goodies kindly supplied by the Wymondham branch of Morrisons.
