The Bradford Hindu Council are helping disadvantaged children enjot Eater this year with the gift of chocolate.

Over the last week they have been joined in the JCI Easter Egg campaign which has collected more than 3,000 easter eggs for children across the Bradford regions. The BHC more than did their part gathering a total of 500.

On behalf of the BHC Bhagy Mistry said “BHC are extremely proud to support the JCI Easter egg appeal. In less than a week we engaged with the Hindu community and requested donations. We were overwhelmed with the response and successfully donated 567 eggs that will be distributed to those in need. Such a fabulous cause and it was great to work with another voluntary organisation. A big thank you to everyone who contributed and supported this appeal.

The JCI Easter Egg appeal is run by volunteers in their spare time. Despite COVID and its restrictions they managed to transform Easter for disadvantaged children.

Appeal Co-ordinator Michelle Pemberton said: “I am overwhelmed by the generosity and hard work each and every donor including the Bradford Hindu Council (BHC) who have put into the appeal to make its eighth year an egg-cellent record breaking one. We cannot express our gratitude enough to everyone who got involved, they have all made this year of the appeal a great success in providing 3539 children with an egg at Easter.”
