Easter eggs distributed by Parents Against Grooming UK

Date published: 16 April 2020

Hundreds of Easter eggs were donated to the community over the Easter weekend (10-12 April).

Volunteers of Parents Against Grooming UK handed out 500 Easter eggs across the borough, after originally planning an Easter event from its Yorkshire Street hub in Rochdale centre.

Around 150 eggs had been collected by the group, before Rochdale Morrisons donated a further 350 chocolate treats.

As the event was cancelled due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the volunteers donated the eggs to those who had been nominated to the community group.

Observing social distancing guidelines, eggs were given to two care homes, a support group and over 200 families.

PAGUK founder, William Howarth said: “We are happy we were able to do this and help bring much-needed smiles to people’s faces.

“We have not forgotten those isolating at home.”
