LRBC volunteers needed for Easter Story Egg Hunt

Easter Funday 2011 Volunteer Flyer

Volunteers are sought from LRBC for an Easter Story Egg Hunt as part of the Leigh Town Council’s annual Easter Saturday Funday at Leigh Library Gardens on Saturday 23rd April.

We need helpers to join with other Leigh Churches to set up from 11am, and help run the hunt from 1-4pm, then again to help pack down until around 5pm.

Help families and children discover the Easter Story while hunting for eggs at this delightful Easter Saturday community event.

Each of the churches in Leigh are being asked to provide as many volunteers as they can to help. Cadbury’s, Waitrose and The Co-operative Food have kindly donated around 650 small Easter Eggs to give out as prizes.

We need help throughout the day from 11am to 5pm – please consider giving a few hours to help. You’ll be involved in setting up and putting down Gazebos, manning Easter egg stations, explaining simply parts of the Easter story at child level and chatting with the public, giving out Easter eggs and general marshalling of the event. Over 1,000 families will also get an invite to their local church Easter Sunday service.

Please call David Elcock at the church office if you can offer some time on 01702 478698 or drop him an email.

    Correction: Easter Saturday is the Saturday after Easter Sunday (i.e. 30th April 2011), not the day before (23rd April). This is normally referred to as “Holy Saturday”. Thanks.

      Hey David, Thanks for the correction – you are indeed correct. We’ll remember that. It was a great day – with lots of happy famalies enjoying the Easter Story Egg Hunt and day. Thanks to the many volunteers that made it happen.
