The Easter Egg Appeal is back!
Hopefully this year we’re going to make it bigger and better than ever! In 2013 we collected around 200 Easter eggs, in 2014 we gathered around 300. Can we collect 400 eggs this year? Absolutely!
The reason JCI collects Easter eggs (whether large or small) is to donate to The Sheffield Children’s Hospital Charity with the hope the gift will bring a smile to the faces of the children and young people whilst staying in hospital. We can all appreciate and imagine that being in hospital can be a stressful and generally unpleasant experience, making you feel isolated and this can feel even worse if you are of a very young age.
We are very excited that our member Helen Green, principal of Razzamataz Theatre School in Sheffield, is once again leading on this project and is planning for pupils at her theatre school to perform to the children and young people in hospital, when we hand over the eggs we have collected.
If you wish to make a donation of an Easter Egg please bring them along to any of our events and someone from the council team will take them for you. Please consider encouraging your friends, family or work colleagues to get involved with the appeal – could you set up a collection point at your work for example? Whilst this appeal is focused on collecting Easter Eggs, we will also accept soft toys if you prefer to give these instead of chocolate. Every donation is appreciated and makes an imapct.
We would like to receive all collections by 29th March so there is plenty of time to collect eggs if you wish to help.
Please let Neal Stirk know if you have problems dropping off any donations and we’ll make arrangements to try and help you out if we can. [email protected]
