Children's wards getting chocful!; AS WE MAKE OUR FIRST 'EGG DROP' AT LOCAL HOSPITALS . . .

Byline: DEAN VALLER

THANKS to you, we have collected about 1,000 eggs to donate to deserving children across Coventry and Warwickshire this Easter.

In the past few weeks, hundreds of donations have rolled in from across the city and we're delighted to be able to give youngsters an extra-special Easter present.

This week, we've been getting under way with deliveries of the bumper crop of chocolate.

Surrounded by the mammoth pile of eggs, Evening Telegraph consumer marketing executive Laura Janew said the donations were "a wonderful effort."

She said: "It's been a really marvellous response - we're so pleased with the wonderful efforts made by all our readers."

Yesterday, we delivered the first batch of eggs to children at Coventry and Warwickshire and Wals-grave hospitals in Coventry and to the Hospital of St Cross in Rugby.

Today, we are at Nuneaton's George Eliot Hospital and Warwick Hospital and tomorrow we'll be handing out the remaining eggs to foster parents in the city.

We've also been able to give eggs away to families at Coventry Haven, a refuge and support centre for women and children who have been victims of domestic violence.

Joanne Smith, a family support worker at Haven, said the eggs would be a "real treat" for families housed at the refuge.

Make sure you buy tomorrow's Evening Telegraph to see how we got on delivering our Easter eggs.
