This Easter, Circadian Trust, the charitable organisation that operates eight Active Centres across South Gloucestershire, including Bradley Stoke Leisure Centre, has donated Easter Eggs to fellow local charities and foodbanks.
Potential new members were encouraged by Active staff – whose organisational vision is to ‘give more’ – to exchange an Easter Egg for a reduced Active joining fee. The centres raised over 200 eggs as part of the ‘Donate an Easter Egg’ campaign, to deliver to local charities in time for the Easter weekend.
The charities to benefit from the Easter Egg donations include North Bristol Foodbank, Resound, The Juice Community Project, Thornbury Baptist Church Foodbank and Yate and Chipping Sodbury Foodbank.
Stewart North, Foodbank Manager at North Bristol Foodbank, said:
“We rely on food donations to feed local people in crisis and it is great to see fellow charities supporting our efforts. Circadian Trust has been a great help to many families who would not usually have the pleasure of an Easter Egg. We would like to take this opportunity to thank anyone who donated an egg, and we hope it will inspire others to get involved in the future.”
Erica Cross, Marketing Manager at Circadian Trust, added:
“We are delighted with the results of our ‘Donate an Easter Egg’ campaign. We have not only seen over 200 people start a healthier, active lifestyle, but we have also been able to help local families that are struggling to get by. Easter is a great time to give something back to the community and we are really proud of our new Active members for getting involved and making a difference.”
