£1 for a chance for 1kg of chocolate!

We have now placed most of our giant Easter Eggs in venues around Newbury, Thatcham and district. Please look out for them and donate just £1 for the chance to win one of the eggs which contain 1 kilo of chocolate!

In Newbury you will see the eggs in the Corn Exchange, RBS, Newbury Building Society, Metro Bank, The Bacon Arms and the Lion Pub. Further afield, patrons of The Old London Apprentice, The Hare & Hounds and The Starting Gate in Speen, The Old Bell, The Lamb Inn, The White Hart in Thatcham, The 6 Bells at Beenham and Ye Olde Red Lion at Chieveley will all have the opportunity to take part over the coming weeks.

The Rampant Cat in Woolton Hill is hoping it’s regulars will help them regain their title as the venue raising the most from their egg.

Anyone visiting Burghfield Sports and Social Club and Thatcham Football Club can purchase a ticket as well as parents with children at Jubilee Day Nursery in Padworth and the Dingley Family Centre.

Students at Newbury College have accepted the challenge for the first time this year, so we are keen to see whether they are able to beat last year’s individual total of £305.

Thank you to all the venues that have agreed to take one of the eggs to raffle on our behalf. All the money raised will be used during the year to support individuals and families in need in the local community and to provide days out and holidays for disadvantaged groups.
