Egbert’s Eggstraordinary Challenge!

Egbert wants to make sure every child and older patient has a cracking Easter, even while spending it in hospital.

Can you help?

Why Egbert needs your help…

For lots of people, Easter is a time for family, friends, Easter egg hunts and of course, chocolate!

… but being in hospital can be particularly difficult during special occasions, especially for children and older patients.

So let’s make Easter eggs-citing!

Egbert’s calling on you to help make Easter weekend an enjoyable one for all of the patients on our Paediatric and Older People’s Wards – by sending an egg, chocolate or online donation.

You can help to bring a little joy to someone’s hospital bed.

Donate online

 How you can help:

- Donate an Easter egg (delivery details below) – or smaller packets of chocolate for smaller hands

- Donate arts and crafts materials as creative activities for patients

- Donate a gift with your phone or online. Text EGGS23 £5 to 70070, or visit our donate page

- Organise a fundraising event – maybe an Easter bake off?


Don’t forget to tell us how you’re supporting Egbert on social media! Remember the hashtag #eggstraordinary.
