Lidl is donating thousands of surplus Easter eggs to charities that support vulnerable people.
This Easter weekend, the retailer will be giving away chocolate eggs to patients and families at Great Ormond Street Hospital as well as volunteers at NSPCC’s Childline.
Eggs will also go to His Church Charity, which will redistribute them in emergency food packages for local charities and coronavirus food hubs across Manchester and Liverpool over the Easter weekend.
Last week, Lidl said it would be raising £2m for Childline to support them during the coronavirus crisis, which has created “unprecidented demand” on its services.
“Now more than ever, we’re looking for ways to bring a little joy to those who are going through tough times, as well as thank the brilliant volunteers who support them ” said Lidl CEO Christian Härtnagel.
“We hope our donation of Easter treats will do just that.”
