Corby Council has come up with a plan to support the town’s food bank in the run-up to Easter.
From Monday, March 17, Corby Health and Fitness Team will be running an Easter egg collection which will give members of the public the chance to receive a free gym induction when they sign up for membership if they donate an Easter egg to Corby food bank.
All people have to do is take an Easter egg to Corby swimming pool or Lodge Park Sports Centre when they sign up for membership and this will entitle them to a free induction.
Corby Council’s lead member for community, Cllr John McGhee, said: “Easter is just one of the holidays we celebrate that can prove to be an expensive time. We all know that the most enjoyable part of Easter, particularly for the young ones, is to indulge in as much chocolate as possible. Corby food bank is a fantastic charity which helps families all year round and I am pleased that we are helping them to achieve this in the run-up to Easter.
“I hope to see lots of residents flocking into our leisure facilities armed with an egg to donate to a wonderful cause.”
