Moray Easter Egg appeal

WITH spring just around the corner, there is the hope of better times ahead.
Many people are still struggling with the impact of the pandemic.
The Northern Scot’s Christmas Toy and Food Appeal helped more than 500 individuals and families.
And now we have joined forces again with our appeal partners to try and make Easter a time to smile.
A simple gift of an Easter egg could be enough to make a young person or a senior citizen realise that people out there care.
So, while we remain in lockdown and restrictions for now, we are asking anyone out doing their weekly shop to buy an Easter egg to donate to someone struggling right now.
The St Giles Centre in Elgin, which remains open, is the main drop-off point for donations.
Moray Council, Tesco, Asda, Dr Grays and Elgin BID are our appeal partners, as well as B&M, Highland Industrial Supplies and WH Smith.
The Covid vaccination programme now offers light at the end of the tunnel and hopefully we can all look forward to a more normal summer.
Let’s brighten up Easter for everybody.
