Easter came for a second time at Rainbow House when they received an eggstra special
donation in the form of a giant Easter egg. The egg which is over two feet tall and weighs
over 5 kg was given to them by Nick Edwards and his family from Parbold.
Rather than trying to raise funds the charity has decided to share it amongst the children
who attend Rainbow House and their families. Some of the children were challenged to
help break up the egg which helps their co-ordination and movement skills.
Ben Blackman, Chief Executive, Rainbow House, said “We have never seen such an
enormous egg – it is really stunning and an ideal way for us to include, not just the children who
attend conductive education and other services, but their families too.
Our main aim is to support children and young people with a variety of neurological and
physical conditions and help them to achieve far more than thought possible but we also look to
involve the family in all that we do – sharing this egg will be a sweet treat for everyone.
We were delighted that Nick and his daughter Penelope were able to join us when we broke
the egg and we thank them for their generosity.”
