Estate agents collect Easter eggs to support Uckfield Foodbank

Rowland Gorringe estate agents want to ensure that every child in families depending on Uckfield Foodbank for provisions over Easter has a chocolate egg too.

So the company has started collecting Easter eggs and is giving out raffle tickets to everyone donating. The tickets will then be entered in a free draw with a £50 voucher as the prize.

The more eggs you take into the Rowland Gorringe office, at 108-110 High Street, the more raffle tickets you will be given – but there is a size limit on eggs, creme eggs, for example, won’t count.

The winner will be offered the chance to choose where they spend the voucher, either at The Highlands Inn, Truffles, Hartfields, or The Picture House.

Mike Symons said: “This way we are supporting the Foodbank and an Uckfield business too. Being a local independent firm that is important to us.”

Rowland Gorringe donated £100 to Uckfield Foodbank after running a Christmas takeaway competition and wanted to continue with practical support.

The deadline for Easter egg donations is Saturday, April 4. The team plans to help with handing out the eggs just before Easter.
