The Lincolnite donates to city funeral directors’ Easter egg appeal

Helping to bring joy to the children’s ward at Lincoln hospital

The Lincolnite made a donation to Pat Cook Funeral Services’ 10th annual Easter egg appeal to help the children’s ward at Lincoln County Hospital.

Over 50 eggs have been donated to the 2021 appeal and anyone wishing to support the cause can drop off their donations to the funeral directors at 156-158 Burton Road in Lincoln by Good Friday.

A generous donation was already made by staff at Tesco Express in North Hykeham, while some of the workforce at City of Lincoln Council also want to support the cause after reading about the idea in The Lincolnite last week.

The 2020 and 2021 appeals were both restricted by the coronavirus pandemic, meaning the eggs will need to be dropped off for a porter to collect on Easter Sunday, April 4.

The funeral directors are hoping normal service can be resumed for the 2022 appeal.

This would mean one of their staff dressing as the Easter bunny and going round the children’s ward with a basket of eggs.
