This year’s appeal is eggstra-special as the centre celebrates 20 years of running one of the largest Easter Egg Appeals in the North-East of Scotland.
The appeal invites shoppers and local businesses to donate chocolate eggs which are then distributed to local children’s charities, hospitals, hostels, crèches and family centres. Over the past twenty years The Trinity Centre has collected and distributed a staggering 56,655 eggs! The number of eggs collected has grown yearly from 400 in 2000 to a record breaking 5,871 last year – and this year could be the most egg-cellent yet!
Linda Stewart, General Manager, commented, “The generosity of Aberdeen’s community and businesses never ceases to amaze and I’m sure that this year will be no different. Your donation could make a big difference to someone this Easter and help put a smile onto a local child’s face.”
“Last year we collected over 5,800 Easter eggs and to celebrate our 20th appeal we’d love to match or exceed last year’s total and with everyone’s help and support; we think we can make this the most successful appeal yet.”
To donate a chocolate Easter egg please go to the drop off point on the centre which is a large perspex egg or alternatively come down to the Level 2 Management suite where a Trinity Centre Team Member will happily take your donation in. We will also be able to accept cash donations via the money slot on our egg where we can buy Easter eggs on your behalf.
We are also looking for local businesses, workplaces and schools to get involved by organising their very own Easter Egg drive for more details please call us on 01224 580076 or email [email protected]
The latest date for donations will be Sunday 5th April.
