Scottish SPCA wants donations for egg-citing Easter fun day

Lanarkshire centre with donated Easter eggs

The Scottish SPCA is looking for donations of Easter eggs in order to hold a community Easter egg hunt at its Lanarkshire Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre.

The Easter fun day is scheduled for 5 April 2020 and staff are planning a variety of activities including the Easter egg hunt.

Assistant manager of the centre, Claire Aiton, said, “We’re hoping to hold this event as a way to give back to the community and say thank you for all they do for us.

“We’ve already received an extremely generous donation from Tesco in Bellshill, which was organised by Margaret Bulloch, one of our long-term supporters.

“We’re very thankful for the donations we’ve received so far, but we’d love to have enough eggs to make the hunt as big as possible.

“We’re looking for chocolate eggs of all sizes and would also love some ‘free from’ eggs so everyone can join in on the day.”

Anyone who is would like to donate eggs for the Easter egg hunt should drop them in to the Lanarkshire Rescue and Rehoming Centre, Bothwell Road, Hamilton, ML3 0SB between 10am and 4pm.
