More than 100 chocolate eggs from the KLFM Easter Egg Appeal were won by the Ferry Project’s assistant cook for their homeless clients.
George Ennis won 117 eggs that were delivered by Simon Rowe, the KLFM breakfast host, on March 28 to the Wisbech based homelessness charity.
The huge array of eggs allowed all the homeless people using the emergency night shelter, hostel and move-on accommodation to have a festive treat on Easter Sunday.
The generosity of all those that donated to the KLFM Easter Egg appeal, means 117 people associated with the charity had their day brightened up.
Keith Smith, director of the Ferry Project, said: ”People often forget that being homeless means that you have been rejected by many people including family and friends. Something as simple as an Easter Egg shows our clients that people care and that in this difficult time of their lives, they are not alone. Thank you to everyone who donated an egg they made a difference.”
