The eggs have been delivered by honorary club member Easter bunnies, and the Lions say the ‘vital’ education provided in lockdowns has been ‘critical’ to young people in these ‘challenging times’.

Uphill School has managed to raise £220 after raffling off their donation and Ashcombe Primary year six children decided to do the same. They are raising funds to ensure every child in the year group can afford a leavers' hoodie for their end-of-year celebration.

St Georges Church School and Nursery, in Weston, is also set to hold a raffle to win the egg. The money will go towards raising much-needed funds to develop the school’s outside areas. Finally, Worle Village School is honouring its team by having a vote among staff to decide who deserves the Easter treat.

A Weston Lions spokesman said: “It has been humbling to hear how the small gift has been received and how it has been a catalyst for bigger things like raising money for their schools or being gifted to deserving individuals.”
