MAMMOTH DONATION: The Royston community came together to support the hospital’s charity by donating 200 Easter eggs to children.
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.”
We have been at the heart of our community, every week, since 1858. The town and its people have changed dramatically since then but the Chronicle has been a constant.
It’s our belief that news should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstance. But we need a little helping hand to do so.
Production Editor, Ashley Ball, said: "In an ever changing media world, it’s important that news is reported correctly and without any hidden agenda.
Your support allows us to keep holding decision-makers to account and report on everything that happens in the town, good or bad, fairly."
