SOLIHULL Moors is calling on Silhillians to make life a little sweeter for children across the borough this Easter.
The charity arm of the football club – Solihull Moors Foundation – is hoping to collect 1,200 Easter Eggs – the average fan attendance – to hand out to Solihull Hospital’s Children’s Ward and Helping Hands at the Renewal Centre in Solihull.
The Helping Hands project is aiming to donate 5,000 chocolate eggs to school children across the borough who will be invited to special events.
There are also plans for players to visit the children staying on the wards at Solihull Hospital and hand out the eggs over the Easter weekned.
Becci Fox, the chief executive at Solihull Moors Foundation, said: “The last couple of months have been incredibly difficult with the cost of living crisis, which is why we believe it’s more important than ever to #BeAPartOfTheEasterStory.
“You can donate any kind of Easter Egg you wish. Whether it’s a single egg or multiple, all donations are welcome as it will make someone’s Easter very special.”
So far more than 850 eggs have been donated and there are hopes the target can be reached before the appeal closes on March 27.
Donations can be taken to the Armco arena during working hours or to Vita in Mell Square.
Anyone who wants to donate financially should contact Becci on [email protected].
