She said: “The children’s department are always very grateful for donations for the children in care and I am always happy to support and help where I can.  

“If anyone would like to contribute Easter eggs and Easter treats, I will ensure that these are distributed to our young people to ensure they enjoy Easter.” 

The drop-off points include: 

  • The Queens pub, Bradley Lane, Bradley Fold
