People in Corby are being invited to hand over their Easter eggs in return for a free gym induction in an initiative to help the town’s Foodbank.

From this Monday (March 16), the Corby Health and Fitness Team will be running an Easter Egg Amnesty which will give members of the public the chance to receive a free induction at the gym, which usually costs £12.50, when signing up for a membership.

All eggs donated will go to the Corby Foodbank to give families across the borough the chance to have a happy Easter.

Anyone interested in the free induction should bring the Easter egg with them to Corby East Midlands International Pool or Lodge Park Sports Centre when signing up for membership.

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 of course, to indulge in as much chocolate as possible!

“The Corby Foodbank 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.”
