Twenty giant Easter Eggs were placed in venues across Newbury and Thatcham before Easter and were raffled among customers and staff. We’ve collected all the money and are pleased to announce that a grand total of £2,216.66 was donated to our welfare funds. Thank you to everyone who took part either hosting or buying tickets.

  • Special thanks go to the following venues that each raised £100 or more for their egg:
  • English Provender Company
  • The Hare & Hounds at Speen

  • Jubilee Day Nursery

Extra special thanks and cheers to The White Hart in Thatcham for raising £200 with their egg, but once again our champion Easter egg fundraisers are the customers of The Rampant Cat in Woolton Hill who this year have raised a record sum of £411!!

All the money raised will be held in our Welfare Fund and used throughout the year to help the most vulnerable people in the local community.
