With Easter just a few weeks away, don’t forget to support our new appeal.

Your Local Paper has teamed-up with Radio West Norfolk to spread some chocolate cheer with the launch of our Easter Egg Appeal.

There is plenty of time as our appeal isn’t being launched until Monday, March 15 when we hope to load donation trolleys with Easter goodies.

The donated sweet treats will be collected and distributed from Monday, March 22 – all within Covid guidelines.

Donation points are currently being arranged, but so far, include Wilco in King’s Lynn town centre, Sainsbury’s stores in the Vancouver Quarter and on the Hardwick estate, Morrisons at Lynn and Tesco at Gaywood. 

Some stores have already put their trolleys out in anticipation of the appeal launch.

The Easter eggs will be distributed to charities and organisations across West Norfolk including domestic abuse charity the Pandora Project, the Salvation Army, Freebridge Community Housing, Scotty’s Little Soldiers for bereaved forces children, Mencap, The Purfleet Trust which supports homeless people, North Lynn-based Little Discoverers, Fairstead Community Shop, the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and West Norfolk Carers.

YLP editor Sue Irving said: “This is a new appeal for us but we know radio presenter Simon Rowe has organised successful Easter egg collections in the past and we are confident our readers and radio station listeners will help us to make  Easter “egg-tra” special during these difficult times.

“You don’t have to spend a fortunate, just pop an extra Easter egg in your shopping trolley for our appeal. 

“It’s a small gesture which we know will make a big difference.”
