Charity egg hunt reaches new heights!

Children from the local community have helped to raise more than £5000 through a charity egg hunt on Saturday 31st March.

Each year, Mary Stevens Hospice hosts an egg hunt and coffee morning for its supporters, which this year saw a record 300 children take part, to help raise money for families at the Hospice.

Each child was given the chance to follow clues, complete challenges such as a sack race and an egg & spoon race, take part in craft activities and, ultimately, find as many chocolate eggs as they could in the grounds of the Hospice.

Originally due to take place on the field at the Hospice, staff & volunteers were forced to adapt the event due to the poor forecast and subsequent bad weather through the bank holiday weekend, however hundreds of families still turned out to support the Hagley Road charity. Laura Millard, Community Engagement Officer, Mary Stevens Hospice, said:

“We simply can't say how overwhelmed we were to see so many families come to see us and take part in our egg hunt. Our community turned out to support us in spite of such a terrible forecast and were so supportive in adapting to Plan B along with us in order to still have a brilliant day.

"The spirit of our community inspires us every day, and the difference they've made with their support, both through this event and on a day-to-day basis simply can't be overestimated."

The next big family event organised by the Hospice will be a huge summer festival at Himley Hall on July 15th, which will see the likes of Lemar, Matt Terry and Reggie & Bollie headline a full day of music and family entertainment.
