Lancashire Cricket Staff donate Easter Eggs to Cornerstone Day Centre
Club staff donated 140 chocolate Easter Eggs
Lancashire Cricket Club staff helped put a smile on the face of local people in need by donating Easter Eggs to Cornerstone Day Centre in Moss Side earlier today.
140 chocolate eggs in total were donated to the Day Centre, who support the homeless and vulnerable adults in the North West. Cornerstones were first founded in 1991 and they serve hundreds of individuals each day providing shelter, accommodation, food, education services and more.
The Day Centre, based in Moss Side, is operated by over 150 volunteers who work tirelessly to tackle food poverty and hunger in Manchester.
The chocolate eggs have been donated by Lancashire Cricket staff that work across the business with donation points in the Pavilion Reception, the Hilton Garden Inn and the Trafford Cricket Centre entrance.
Head of Community Growth at the Lancashire Cricket Foundation, Sandy Mitchell, said: “Easter eggs are something that many people take for granted, but not everybody is able to receive one.
“It’s about giving something back and we hope that these eggs will go a long way to making people smile over the Easter holidays. It really is the least that we as a Club could do.”
Angela McIntyre, Operations Manager at Cornerstone said: “We can’t thank the staff at Lancashire Cricket enough for this kind gesture.
“This weekend, all the Easter Eggs will be passed on to people who would normally go without such treats. You have really helped to make a difference.”
