A NUMBER of Royston organisations contributed a ‘mammoth’ amount of Easter eggs for Barnsley Hospital Charity earlier this week.

Sue McGougan Micklethwaite, of Royston Friends Association, Dave Rowe, from Royston Freecycle and Gaz Hackett, from G Hackett’s Plastering, donated a total of 200 Easter eggs to the charity on Monday.

Dave said: “This is the Royston community at its best - we do numerous events and the village never fails to deliver, it makes you proud to live there and be part of the community.”

Jane Mills, Barnsley Hospital Charity development manager, added: “The little Easter treats and crafts we receive from our amazing supporters certainly put a smile on the faces of children visiting or staying in hospital over Easter.

“Thank you to everyone for your support - it is both an incredible effort and outpouring of community spirit, particularly in these current times.”
