Hundreds of chocolate eggs will be donated to worthy causes by a Derbyshire company this Easter.

Waste management company Ward, which has a sites in Ilkeston, would like to hear from charities, hospices or any other organisations in the county that would benefit from a visit from the Ward Easter bunny.

Every year the company personally delivers a lorry load of chocolate eggs, with Ward written on in icing, to many of its customers as a token of appreciation. This year the company is going one stage further and has bought over 500 additional eggs to donate to people who wouldn’t otherwise get anything at Easter.

Donald Ward, commercial manager of the family business, said: “We’ve been buying the Easter eggs to give our customers for around seven years now and each year we’re buying more and more eggs and reaching more people with our gift. We’re asking if anyone who knows any organisations or charities that deserve an Easter egg can get in touch by tweeting us at @WardRecyling using the hashtag #tweetforatreat.”
