A CHESTER care home teamed up with an Ellesmere Port biker club as they collected Easter eggs to donate to a children’s charity.

Crabwall Hall in Chester was visited by the well-known Robbers Dogs biker’s club who picked up a donation of 70 Easter eggs, collected from staff, friends, and family at the care home, to be given to local children.

The Robbers Dogs added these to their own collection, which they put together each year from funds collected at regular charity nights held at the start of every month. The eggs-cellent haul was then taken to the Park Family Centre on Stanney Lane, where the eggs were distributed among local families.

The biker's club also had an extra group member to help them transport their donations in the form of Crabwall Hall’s Activities Lead Jacqui Cameron, who surprised residents by riding on a motorcycle for the first time.

Jacqui said: “Taking part in this challenge has been a huge amount of fun and everyone at the home including relatives and visitors have been behind us all the way, donating so many eggs for the children.

“It’s for such an important cause. I’m very glad to be able to do my bit.”

Crabwall Hall care home is run by Barchester Healthcare, one of the UK’s largest care providers, which is committed to delivering personalised care across its care homes and hospitals. Crabwall Hall provides residential care for 38 beds residents from respite care to long term stays.
