Easter egg appeal a huge success for St Neots school

EGG-SIGHTED: Customers staff at the Optical branch in St Neots set their sights on making sure a school for children and students with special needs had a cracking Easter egg hunt.

They appealed for donations of eggs – and were inundated, with dozens of them.

Denise Viggars, manager of the branch within the Westgate department store in St Neots High Street, said: “We had a brilliant response for our appeal to help the Samuel Pepys School in St Neots and collected no less than 85 chocolate eggs and 90 cream eggs.

“Each year staff at the school organise an Easter egg hunt and, because the school offers such a full range of opportunities for children and students with special needs from the ages of 2 to 19, we wanted to support their day.

“I’d like to say a really big ‘thank you’ to the customers and staff who responded – especially staff at Little Barford Power Station, who held their own collection to add to our appeal.

“The huge number of eggs we collected will make their event this year extra special.”
