Bigger and better – that is the aim for two Hitchin businesses which have teamed up to bring an Easter surprise to hospital patients.

Office recruitment specialists Tate came up with the idea in 2014 to collect chocolate eggs for those in hospital over the Easter weekend.

With help from clients and candidates, the team’s first effort saw more than 200 eggs donated – a number they doubled last year.

But now with the help of financial services company LV=’s Hitchin branch, the Tate team are hoping to go one better to deliver even more chocolate treats and Easter-themed gifts to young, elderly and special needs patients in hospital, as well as those living in care homes.

The two firms began collecting on February 20, but there’s still time to play your part before the deadline on Friday, March 18.
