Easter bunny antics for Letchworth hospice

BUSINESSES across Comet country have been getting in the Easter spirit for a hospice.

Garden House Hospice in Letchworth GC has held its first Easter Bunny Campaign, which has seen 100 staff at Admin Re Pension Trustees in Hitchin dressed up as bunnies.

Diane Dungan, senior analyst for the company, based at The Priory, said: “We are so pleased to have organised such a fun event for staff, that also raised the profile of our charity of the year, Garden House Hospice.”

Staff at BBW Solicitors in Letchworth GC also played their part by donning bunny suits for the cause.

Stevenage District Scouts and Cubs group teamed up with Sainsbury’s Corey’s Mill to make a delivery van from cardboard boxes - which the hospice has filled with knitted Easter chicks.

The group raised �230 for the hospice, which provides care for terminally ill patients in North Hertfordshire and Stevenage.

Tina Fletcher, corporate fundraiser for the hospice in Gillison Close, said: “It’s so encouraging to see so many creative and fun ways of helping the hospice. A big thank you to everyone who supported our first ever Easter Bunny Campaign.”
