Eggciting school holidays for our children

Published: 29th Apr 2019

Thanks to the generosity of our corporate partners, hundreds of our children have enjoyed some eggs-tra Easter fun!

Cadbury World visit

Staff at Mondelez International took to the kitchen to whip up a fundraising bake sale. The money they raised gave nine primary aged children, all nominated by their Education Advisors, the opportunity to enjoy a day at Cadbury’s World with their brothers and sisters.  

Although most brothers and sisters grow up in the same home, not all children in care are able to live with their siblings so being able to make such fun memories together was extra special for many of our children. They all enjoyed learning about the history of chocolate, seeing how it is made today as well as sampling some goodies themselves!

After a trip to the shop, the 4D cinema and play area, a Cadbury World first timer said “I couldn’t choose [the best thing] , everything was good today!”

Thank you to our partners at Mondelez International and to all their staff who picked up their whisks or bought some cakes to help our children make some family memories.                                                

Easter eggs and hunts

Corporate parents Engie, also spread some chocolate fun with their staff and engineers donating a whopping 212 eggs – beating their record donation last year by 12! 20 eggs were given to each of our residential homes for young people with disabilities, with two Easter egg hunts taking place. The rest of the eggs were distributed by our Unaccompanied Asylum Seeking Children (UASC) team.

After hearing about Engie’s donation, a staff member’s generous wife decided to make a special contribution herself by creating chocolate bouquets, bursting with Easter goodies. These bouquets have been awarded to young people for achieving their personal development goals.
