A CHARITY supporting seriously-ill children staged an egg-citing Easter egg hunt for more than 150 people.

Sebastian’s Action Trust organised two events, giving children an afternoon to gather small plastic eggs in their baskets.

They were then able to choose a chocolate egg from an impressive display of hundreds of eggs, which were donated by a range of local businesses.

Katie Cowie, director of care, said: “It’s wonderful to be able to give our families fun days out like the Easter egg hunt.

"It is important that families have time together, making memories and our events at The Bluebells and The Woodlands enabled them to do this. "We are so grateful for the generosity from many businesses that have donated literally hundreds Easter eggs to be enjoyed by seriously-ill children and their brothers and sisters.”
