Chocolate-lovers have the chance to feast on a supersized sweet treat while also raising vital funds for charity.
Diss and District Rotary Club is hosting its Easter egg raffle with proceeds being split between East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) and End Polio Now.
Thirty-two 1kg eggs are being placed in pubs and shops across the town and surrounding villages. Participants pay £1 and pick one of 100 squares on a grid – one of which is now being kept at each location.
Draws take place and the ‘owners’ of the winning squares secure the eggs. Rotary Club member Richard Pither said: “We’ve been running this competition for more than ten years now.
“It’s great fun, while at the same time raising lots of money for worthy causes, and I’d expect both EACH and End Polio Now to gain the best part of £1,000 apiece.
“We always support a popular local charity and most members of the public will be aware of at least one person who has benefitted from EACH’s services.
“We consider it an important and very special cause.”
The giant eggs and grids can be found at Angel Café, Fair Green, Diss, The Olive Tree hairdressers, Shelfanger Hall, The Fighting Cocks, Winfarthing, The Angel Inn, Larling, The Queen’s Head, Long Stratton, The Fox and Hounds, Great Moulton, The Saracens Head, Diss, The Gamekeeper, Old Buckenham, Albright of Diss, Diss Bowls Club, Cannells Butchers, Diss, The Cretingham Bell, The Old Mill House, Saxtead, The Queen’s Head, Dennington, The Ivy House, Stradbroke, The Black Horse, Thorndon, The Beaconsfield Arms, Occold, The Crown Inn, Gissing, The Railway Tavern, Mellis, The Scole Inn, The Garden House, Banham, Diss Town Football Club and NBR Mobility, Victoria Road, Diss.
