A chocolate-laden Easter is guaranteed for children and the homeless thanks to a Forest Town company.

A spokesman for Kingfisher said: “We have collected over 200 eggs and treats, so thank you very much to everyone that donated.

All of our staff have donated Easter eggs and we have collected from some local shops including Oak Tree Tesco, Morrisons Mansfield, Co-op Clipstone and Bee Noticed , so a big thank you to them.”
