Easter egg appeal off to a cracking start thanks to Merseyflow and Merseylink


An annual Easter egg appeal hoping to give an Easter treat to disadvantaged children in Halton has been kick-started with a donation of £1,000 worth of Easter eggs thanks to Merseyflow and Merseylink.

Merseyflow’s Easter egg appeal has launched for 2024, and is open for donations from customers, staff, and members of the public to add to what will become a growing Easter egg pile at Merseyflow’s Walk-In Centre at Manor Park in Runcorn.

The Walk-In Centre will be accepting Easter egg donations from Tuesday 20th February until Monday 18th March at Howard Court, Manor Park, Runcorn, WA7 1SJ. It is open Mon – Fri 9am-7pm and Saturday, Sunday, and Bank holidays 9am-6pm.

The treats are being given to Halton Children’s Centres in Runcorn and Widnes and will benefit hundreds of disadvantaged children from some of Halton’s most deprived areas.

Denise Caldwell, Early Help Officer with Halton Children’s Centres, said: “The response from the community in Halton to this kind of appeal is always fantastic and we’d like to thank Merseyflow and Merseylink for their generous contribution. Every egg counts, and we’re hopeful that we receive enough donations to make sure every child in Halton has a treat this Easter.”

Hugh O’Connor, General Manager for Merseylink, said: “We’re very pleased that we’re able to support the annual Easter egg appeal for another year, and would love to see more people getting involved to help support Halton Children’s Centres to continue its important work in the community.”

Helen Williams, Marketing Manager at Merseyflow, said: “We’d like to thank Merseylink and all of our staff and customers who have donated to the appeal so far. Supporting the local community in Halton is really important to us and we’re glad we could help kick-start the appeal again.

“Our Walk-In Centre is open and ready for people to drop off their Easter treats, please help us to make this our best year yet and spread some joy this Easter.”
