Inspired by the success of the Town Council’s  ‘Reverse Father Christmas’ collection in December which provided gifts, food and toiletries for struggling West Sussex families, Arundel Brownies have decided to run a campaign collecting Easter Eggs for distribution to people who otherwise might not get one at Easter.

The Brownies came to the Town Hall to meet Mayor Tony Hunt, Town Clerk Carolyn Baynes and Town Events Manager Tracy Clayton and to ask for support for their ‘egg-cellent’ idea. Each of the Brownie Sixes made a presentation, explaining that the idea was to put a smile on people’s faces at Easter. “How would you feel if you didn’t get an Easter Egg?” they asked.

They are seeking donations of Easter Eggs for re-distribution to local families in partnership with Arundel CE School, St Philips Catholic Primary School and local charities Home-Start Arun, Worthing and Adur and My Sister’s House. The girls asked Arundel Town Council to help by helping them to promote the scheme and by storing the Easter Eggs they collected.

Town Events Manager Tracy Clayton commended the girls on their creative plans for promoting the Easter Egg scheme, which will include using video on Facebook and QR codes to enable cash donations via GoFundMe.

Mayor Tony Hunt commented: “Arundel Brownies have found an imaginative way to put a smile on peoples’ faces this Easter – they certainly put a smile on mine – and we will help them in every way we can.”

Arundel Town Hall is the collection point for Easter Eggs donation during opening hours – Monday-Friday 9am-1pm. Donations should be dropped off by Monday 27 March. Alternatively donate to the Brownies GoFund campaign at https://www.gofundme.com/f/1st-arundel-brownies-are-trying-to-raise-a-ton
