A BIG-HEARTED barber has started a campaign to donate Easter eggs to kids in need - just months after delivering thousands of Christmas presents to struggling families.

Tony Batty, who owns Tony’s Barber Shop on Racecommon Road, restarted the campaign to deliver Easter eggs to hospitals across South Yorkshire earlier this week.

He’s already seen donations fly in - and he’s hoping to at least match last year’s donation figure of 2,000.

He told the Chronicle: “The Christmas appeal was fantastic - it’s the best we’ve ever done.

“This Easter egg donation period will end on April 6.

“If we can at least match last year’s figure of a couple of thousands then I’ll be happy.

“I just want to help people.

“We’ll be donating the eggs to Weston Park, Barnsley Hospital and Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

“We’re also thinking about helping parents who are struggling by putting on an Easter egg hunt at Locke Park.”
