Easter eggs donated to Sheffield Children’s Hospital

Have your say

A group of children from a UK theatre company have helped to almost double an Easter egg donation to Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

Children between the ages of six and eight from Razzamataz Theatre Schools, along with Junior Chamber International Sheffield (JCI), have collected 650 Easter eggs - almost double last year’s total of 350.

They collected 200 eggs in 2013, 350 last year and set a target of 400 eggs this Easter.

The children donated eggs and were supported by Sheffield businesses, who also made contributions.

Razzamataz students performed street dance routines and in the Children’s Hospital reception when they delivered the eggs.

“We are very proud to be able to have just a small part in making the children’s stay in the hospital a little brighter,” said JCI Sheffield President Mark Smith.

“JCI Sheffield is all about making a positive change in our community so we encourage our members to be active in organising events like this one.

“Having the students perform topped off this special event.”

Some 500 eggs went to the hospital with the remainder going to Age UK, Jubilee Food Bank and other community organisations across Sheffield.
