Fundraisers for Macmillan Cancer Support in Spalding and Holbeach are inviting families to join an Easter Egg Hunt for their deserving cause.

The brand new event takes place at Ayscoughfee Gardens in Spalding on Good Friday, March 30, between 11am and 3pm.

Entry is just £2 per child for which they can take part in the hunt itself, along with a colouring competition, family games and a write a prayer or message on Easter egg-shaped tags for a wish tree.

Catherine Stone, chairman of Macmillan’s Spalding and Holbeach fundraising committee, said: “It’s an idea from one of our committee members who has young children as a way of making them aware of Macmillan and the work it does.

“We met with the people at Ayscoughfee Gardens to discuss the feasibility of having the event there and they assured us that even if the weather isn’t very nice, we can move the Easter Egg Hunt into Ayscoughfee Hall itself.

“There will also be a wish tree for which children can write prayers or messages related to Easter and then hang them on the tree in memory who has passed away through cancer.”

“It’s quite nice to have new fundraising ideas that we’ve never done before and that don’t just involve adults.”
