Help firms make Easter special for children

Three funeral directors are appealing to the public to donate Easter eggs for children who cannot spend Easter at home or with their families.

Staff at John Drage Funeral Directors in Croyland Road and Bruce Carter & Son Funeral Directors in Havelock Street, Wellingborough, along with Rushden & District Funeral Service in Wellingborough Road, Rushden, are collecting the eggs to give to children who are being taken care of by the Wellingborough and East Northamptonshire Women’s Aid.

Funeral manager Cora Drage said: “We would like to be able to give an egg to every local child away from home this Easter.”

Drop in or call John Drage on 01933 222492, Bruce Carter & Son on 01933 223228, or Rushden & District on 01933 420720.
