People are being invited to give generously and help make it an eggs-travagant Easter for the city's care leavers.

The City of Wolverhampton Council is appealing for people to donate chocolate Easter eggs which it will then distribute to young people.

Donations can be made to the Reach Leaving Care Team, Old Heath Crescent, Wednesfield WV1 2HP, every Thursday from 1 to 6pm from this Thursday (23 March, 2023) to Thursday 6 April, 2023.

Alternatively, people can email or, who can arrange to collect the egg(s) at a time to suit.

Councillor Beverley Momenabadi, the council’s Cabinet Member for Children and Young People, said: "Supporting children in care and care leavers is a key priority for the council. In many cases, they will have experienced a tough start to their life, and we want to make sure that they don't miss out on the things that many of us take for granted. 

“So please donate a chocolate egg or two, if you can, and help make this Easter eggs-tra special for them all.”
