The company runs an office in each town and earlier this year donated money to local food banks to help them to buy and supply food and household products to the increasing number of families who use their service throughout the year.
The money was the proceeds from its Christmas charity appeal and this week funeral director Helen Ellis returned to each food bank laden with a bumper Easter delivery of chocolate eggs to give to the families the next time they turn up to collect their food.
The food banks in question were the Eastwood Food Bank, which serves families living in Eastwood and Kimberley, the Haven Food Bank in Stapleford, Brinsley Food Bank, the Selston Food Bank at the Tin Hat Centre, and Salcare, which serves the local community in Heanor.
Helen said it was important to make sure no child went without an egg to open.
She said: “We’ve supported the food banks for two years now at Christmas and we decided that it would be nice for the children of the families who go there to wake up on Easter Sunday to their own chocolate egg.
“It’s very rewarding to be able to give something back to the communities we work in like this and to make sure that no child goes without a chocolate egg at Easter just because their families are finding things a bit tight.”
