Easter egg appeal in Mitchelstown
At the moment, Easter eggs are on offer in almost every shop and rather than making ourselves sick from too much chocolate, why not pick up a few extra eggs and donate them to a good cause?
Ellen Fitzgibbon in 4, O'Neill Crowley Terrace and Supermacs will be collecting donations of Easter eggs to donate to chidlren's wards in CUH, the Mercy, Bon Secours, Crumlin and Temple Street hospitals.
This Easter Egg appeal was started last year by Catherine Middleton and her husband, who collected 440 eggs last year after their son Liam contracted liver disease and ended up in many of the above hospitals.
"He was a patient in some of the above mentioned hospitals and spend time there over the Easter period. Now, this is a way of saying thank you by helping other children out. Thanks to everyone who has donated so far and I hope that the eggs keep coming," Mrs Middleton said.
This year, Mitchelstown woman Ellen saw the campaign on Facebook and decided to support the good cause herself. People can drop the eggs in to Ellen or Supermacs until Friday March 15 and already they have collected more than 80 eggs.
Eggs will be accepted until Friday, March 15 and all donations would be greatly appreciated.
