It’s time to crack open the donation trolleys and help make Easter special for lots of West Norfolk families.

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

Collection trolleys officially open on Monday for a week although some are already open. Donated sweet treats will be collected and distributed from Monday, March 22 – all within Covid guidelines. Donation points are Wilco in King’s Lynn town centre, Sainsbury’s stores in the Vancouver Quarter and at Hardwick, Morrisons in Lynn and Tesco in Gaywood. 

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: “Thank you in anticipation for your support for this new appeal with Simon and Radio West Norfolk.”
