A WILSON ESTATES, of Mottram Road, Stalybridge, have always been actively involved in all sorts of charity fundraisers aimed at making a difference within their community.
And in the build-up to Easter they, along with other local businesses have been rallying to help one very special cause put a smile on children’s faces.
This year, their staff donated a hefty collection of Easter eggs to the privately run Barty’s Foodbank as part of their campaign to deliver 10,000 eggs to the needy.
Owner Adele Wilson said: “We’ve built this business from the ground up and along the way we’ve had so much support from people recommending us in and around the area.
“So, we try and get involved as much as possible with local charitable causes all year round to give a little bit back to the community.
“This year for easter, we got involved with Barty’s Foodbank Easter Egg appeal. The owner, Steve Barton set himself a goal of collecting 10,000 easter eggs to donate to underprivileged families.
“He’s an incredible person who does so much for good causes and never asks for anything in return, and we were more than happy to donate a few eggs.
“It’s not until you get involved with so many different charities that it really opens your eyes to what’s going on in Tameside, and if we even make just one child happy this easter it’s well worth it.”
