Wood Street Mission Easter Egg Project 2011

28 Apr 2011

Thank you for your donations - over 500 eggs received this year

I am writing to pass on our sincerest thanks for your generous donations of Easter eggs and donations towards this year’s Easter Project. This really was a fantastic collection and we received over 500 Easter eggs this year from The University of Manchester. Once again we were the biggest donor!

Over 667 families are already booked in for help with eggs and Wood Street will start giving out Easter treats from 15 April up until Eas ter. Last year, 1,363 local children received Easter treats and Wood Street expects to help even more children and families this year.

Our contribution to their work really will make a huge difference to these local families and help them to continue to offer this free help to them. The families themselves remain very grateful for the help they receive and so it is on their behalf that Wood Street Mission thanks you all for your contributions to this year’s project and continued support.

The Mission continues to support families throughout the year with clothing parcels, baby equipment, bedding as well as offering a school uniform package at the beginning of the school year. You can find out more about their work online at:

If you would like to support Wood Street Mission throughout the year, why not join the monthly Wood Street Mission Lottery along with other colleagues in the University. Further information and an application form can be sent electronically if requested.
