Spreading some Easter joy

Date: April 10, 2024

Over the Easter period, our Sweet Projects teams across the country helped to spread some joy in the communities we work in and around, donating more than 130 Easter eggs to a variety of charitable organisations around the UK.

The eggs were collected from each of our projects and head offices, and distributed to a range of charities, all supporting some of the most vulnerable groups in our society.

The tasty treats were welcomed as a nice gift, and something to surprise and uplift others, with one charity expressing its gratitude, saying “We were absolutely bowled over by Sweet Projects’ phenomenal efforts with the egg donations. We are enormously grateful for your generosity to our local community projects.” 

All of us at Sweet Projects are very clear in our ambition to help support and improve the lives of those in our communities, and also support the amazing charities and organisations dedicated to making a positive impact on our world.

Some of the charities that benefited from the donations are:

– Daybreak Respite Care – this is a day centre in Staines offering respite care and entertainment for older people or those with disabilities in Spelthorne;

– Dementia Carers – a Runnymede-based group supporting dementia patients and their carers;

– White Lodge – supporting children and adults with a range of disabilities;

– Clubhouse Project – supporting young adults with moderate to severe learning disabilities and helping them to build skills to facilitate independent living; and

– Runnymede Family Centre – supporting parents with young children, many of whom may be struggling with significant financial problems, relationship breakdowns and mental health issues.

The Sweet Projects Charity Committee would like to say a massive ‘thank you’ to everyone who supported the donations and the special causes noted above.
