Wood Street Mission Easter Egg Project hatches a surplus

04 Apr 2013

The charity's 2013 project to provide Easter eggs, food and financial support for local families in need has received 30% more donations than last year's.

After providing food hampers for 958 families and thousands of chocolate treats for 2,220 children, the Mission was left with a surplus of donations which it has shared with a number of other local agencies:

  • Manchester Women's Aid
  • Willow Park Trust
  • Manchester Creative Support
  • DISC (Family Support) in Salford

Colleagues at The University of Manchester contributed approximately 800 Easter eggs in all shapes and sizes, as well as lots of foodstuffs and monetary donations. This year's contributions represent an increase on last year’s project, and Rose and I cannot thank you all enough for your generosity during a financially demanding period.
