We had a fantastic time at our eighth annual Easter Trail on Saturday where over 350 children joined us in learning about our work and collecting delicious Montezuma’s chocolates along the way!
The Graylingwell Park Partnership – Linden Homes, Affinity Sutton and the Homes and Communities Agency – sponsored this year’s Easter Trail, which raised a fantastic £3,500.
Natalie Flint, sales director at Linden Homes Guildford, says: “We’re very proud to have sponsored the Easter Trail for the second year running. As ever, everyone had a great day out and Children on the Edge is an extremely worthwhile charity helping the most vulnerable children around the world.”
During the event families not only enjoyed the trail itself but took part in fete games, bouncy castle bouncing, craft and face painting. We also announced the winner of the Montezuma’s ‘Design your own Easter Egg’ competition and the winners received a full size egg with their own design on it. Congratulations to winners Jena Juggins, aged 6 who made a pink egg face and Leo Tregear, aged 8 who created a spring landscape. Both Jena and Leo are from Fishbourne primary.
We also had a visit from the Mayor, Councillor Tony French who did a little tour of the stands himself and said "The Easter Chocolate Trail is a wonderful example of the community of Chichester District coming together to help a locally based charity."
Thank you to all those who came along, our generous sponsors and as always a huge thank you to Montezuma’s Chocolates for coming up with the idea in the first place, supporting us along the way and providing such wonderful chocolate.
