'Egg-cellent' response to the Wessex FM Easter Egg Appeal

A massive THANK YOU from all of us at Wessex FM to everyone who donated money to our Easter Egg appeal.

Thanks to you more than £500 worth of Easter Eggs were delivered to food banks in Dorchester, Bridport, Weymouth and Portland this week. 

We also received an eggs'-tra donation from Lulworth Castle.

Ian Ferguson from Weymouth Taxis kindly delivered them for us.

He said:

"In these times we all feel a little bit frustrated that we can't do enough.

"Anything that we can do to help out and bring a little bit of light into people's lives has got to be a good thing."

Wessex FM Managing Director, Rick Simmonds said:

"We had to think hard about how we were going to manage our Easter egg appeal this year - we really didn’t know how successful this would be in these unprecedented times.

"I’m so thrilled that Dorset rose to the challenge and achieved over double our fundraising target!

"We hope the eggs bring a little joy to children this weekend but am also delighted that by smashing our target, we will be able to make further cash donations to food banks in the area to help them continue their good work beyond the Easter weekend."
