A Bunny costume, 150 baskets and a whole load of Happy Kids!
Well it was Easter and we were in lockdown again! But I wasn't being stopped this time in giving the people of Consett my yearly community event The Egg Hunt.
I couldn't do the Egg Hunt as normal, popping up at locations and giving out tons of stuff to the people of Consett like above... I hummed and hared at what do do then, at 3am when my best ideas come to me The Egg Drop was born. Id deliver baskets of goodies to peoples homes and gardens... So that is exactly what I did.
Over a month ago now I posted on my personal Facebook page and reached out to my business pals to see if they would want to get involved, I didn't expect much as its been a shitty year for everyone. BY GOD did they deliver a total of 18 business friends of mine came together and donated a whopping £750 for me to buy things to give away to the kids of Consett for free! Tesco and Morrisons donated 80 eggs to the event too!
I spent the next four weeks raiding the shelves of shops for crafts, games, sweets and eggs filling my spare room to the brim with 150 of everything and some!
Then the day came Saturday 3rd April we set off at 10am and hit out first house, the bloody smiles man that came from the little girls face, in shock but so much happiness beamed from her it was just totally lush!
From that little girls house I visited with the help of my friend Megan 45 houses that day giving out a total of 74 baskets, time to put my feet up? Oh no it was 7pm and it was time to make up another 76 baskets ready for Easter Sunday!!
10am Easter Sunday came and we were off again delivering another 76 baskets to 43 houses! What an absolutely amazing, heart-warming and magical couple of days it was. I sat down yesterday (Easter Monday) and cried so many happy tears looking through the photos of the weekend, why did I cry probably because I couldn't actually see much through the massive bunny head so couldn't really see their lush faces!
Head over to Facebook to look through even more photos from the weekend and please do give some love to all of the business sponsors below because without them the event would have never been possible!
BIG THANK YOU TO ALL MY BUSINESS SPONSORS!
