Nearly £1,300 was raised for charity in an Easter egg hunt organised by Dawson Hart solicitors in Uckfield on Good Friday.
The sun shone and there were lots of happy faces – as you will see from the pictures – among the 200 egg hunters who joined in the fun at Uckfield Rugby Club.
Money raised will go to Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice which cares for 300 children and young adults, from all over Sussex and South East Hampshire, who have progressive life-limiting and life-threatening illnesses.
Dawson Hart has chosen the hospice as its charity of the year and funds raised will help towards meeting the £3.5 million needed each year to provide all the care services. Less than 7p in every pound is funded by the Government, so Chestnut TreeHouse relies heavily on support from the community.
Laura Manton, director of Dawson Hart said: “Everyone has really come together giving up their free time to support this amazing charity.
“We would like to thank everyone for supporting the event and in particular a huge thank you to the Uckfield Rugby Club and their team for letting us host the event at the club, to Jayne Hardcastle who gave up her time to do some incredible face-painting and to Alex Butcher for the superb sounds.
“The tombola was such a success because of all the donations from family and friends of Dawson Hart and from local businesses. We can’t thank you all enough.”
