An Easter eggs-ercise

Funeral homes in Alnwick, Amble and Rothbury are appealing for help with a special Easter eggs-ercise in aid of local children.

Staff from the Co-operative Funeralcare are urging people to donate Easter eggs for SureStart Children’s Centres.

Funeralcare manager Doug Potts said: “There are many youngsters in the local area who may welcome a bit of extra cheer this Easter.

“As a business at the heart of the community, we wanty to do our bit by trying to put a smile on as many local youngsters’ faces as possible.”

Easter eggs can be handed to staff at the funeral homes until April 14.
