There was a cracking Easter surprise for Hospiscare.

The Devon charity was presented with 70 Easter eggs by the Honiton and Sidmouth branches of NatWest bank.

The eggs were gathered during a Devon-wide drive at NatWest branches to collect 1,000 Easter eggs to donate to local charities.

Hospiscare – which supports local people with a terminal diagnosis – is the charity of the year for the east and central Devon branches of NatWest.

The eggs - which took around a fortnight to roll in - were donated by staff, customers and local businesses.

“We were chuffed, although having to see them every day was quite challenging!” said Nick Baxter, Honiton’s NatWest branch manager.

“Nick rang me and said, ‘Can you find a home for them?’, and I said ‘Yes, I’m sure we can’, not appreciating how many Easter eggs there were!” said Richard Cousins, Hospiscare’s corporate relationship manager.

The eggs will probably be sold off in Hospiscare’s shops. “It was a generous gesture from NatWest,” said Mr Cousins.
