Smiths News' staff donate Easter eggs

Wednesday 4th April 2012

Staff from Smiths News made an eggtra special visit to Paternoster School, in Cirencester last week and donated Easter eggs to every pupil at the school on the last day of the school term.

A total of 81 eggs were donated by staff based at Smiths News’ head office in Swindon. Around half of them were taken to Paternoster School by Smiths News’ representatives, Rachel Cook and Nicola Hewlett. Smiths News’ Communications Executive, Rachel Cook said:

“Every year, staff at our head office generously donate Easter Eggs, which are distributed within the community. This year, we chose to donate the Easter eggs to Paternoster school which caters for pupils aged 2-16 with severe or profound and multiple learning difficulties. They were delighted when we contacted them to arrange the visit and we left with a lovely thank you card made by the pupils.”

After the Easter eggs were given out to the pupils, Head Teacher Julie Mantell said:

“We were delighted to have been chosen by Smiths News for this year’s Easter donation. The children were so excited when they received their Easter eggs. I would like to say a big thank you to all of the staff who donated and wish them a Happy Easter from everyone at Paternoster School.”

The remaining eggs will be taken by Nicola Hewlett to The Deaf Centre in Cirencester on Saturday 7th April. This charity is close to Nicola’s heart as she volunteers once a month at the Centre.

For every egg donated by staff, Smiths News will total the value of the eggs and put it towards their Community Week target, a fundraising initiative for staff to get involved in to raise money for local and national charities.
