The Ford & Stanley Easter Egg Appeal 2019 !
We collected a record number of Easter Eggs for Children First Derby !!
Easter is a time to celebrate and spend time with those close to us. But for some, Easter can be one of the hardest times of the year.
This is why we launched 'The Ford & Stanley Easter Egg Appeal 2019'.
The appeal was simple: donate as many Easter Eggs as possible to charity.
We set a goal to beat our 2018 donation of 60 Easter Eggs to Children First Derby - a local charity we have built a strong relationship with over the past couple of years. Based in Derby, Children First Derby work with vulnerable children, young people and families to make a positive impact in their lives and in the local community. They do exceptional work all year round, but will provide especially vital support for under-privileged families this holiday period.
We used our connections to call on all walks of the Rail Industry to help us achieve our goal. It's safe to say we were not disappointed!
Thanks to support from many of our industry friends including Ricardo, Rail Forum Midlands and Rail Media... we successfully beat our target of 60 eggs!
Together, we were able to collect over 130 eggs - meaning we acheived more than double our 2018 total !!
For some children, this will be the only Easter Egg they receive this year. So we owe a huge thank you to everyone who got involved - regardless of how small a donation may appear - it will make the world of difference to someone.
From all of us at Ford & Stanley, whether you celebrate Easter or not, we hope you have a pleasant break and a whole lot of chocolate !!
