After the incredible response Made Mint received from the Christmas Toy and Food Drive for Blackpool Salvation Army, Cloe, CEO and Founder of Made Mint, decided to host an Easter Egg Collection for BSA and managed to raise a staggering 250 Easter Eggs for Blackpool Salvation Army to help the Charity support the children who use their services.

The response we had from locals in Wrea Green and surrounding areas was incredible, the community really came together to do good for those who need it. We also had businesses such as Tap & Go who donated 42 Easter Eggs and Dizzy Ducks who donated 30 Easter Eggs. Our drop off point was Dizzy Ducks Bistro, a small café nestled in the village which serves food until 4pm and opens as a small bar in the evenings, a café loved by the locals! The team at Dizzy Ducks chipped in to help receive donations and store all of the eggs to keep them safe and sound.

Where did the eggs go?

Over the Easter Holidays, Blackpool Salvation Army have hosted many child friendly events to keep the Children busy and entertained over the holidays – The donated chocolate eggs came in handy during these events. Blackpool Salvation Army also donated some of the eggs to The Salvation Army’s Refugee Resettlement Service on the Fylde Coast who provide support for refugee’s and George Williams House which is Supported Accommodation for homeless young people aged 16-24 and families with dependent children.

Every child should be able to experience the magic of Easter, and our Easter Egg Collection made this possible. Blackpool has eight of the most ten deprived neighbourhoods in Lancashire which makes the pressure on Blackpool Salvation Army even more immense, so we are proud to of been able to help them and make a difference.

A few days after the easter egg drop off, the picture you see above was posted on social media through Blackpool Salvation Army and was spotted by local press, who approached us and asked if they could feature our egg-celent easter egg donation in the papers!

We also had chance to do a last minute good gesture through a local lady for Safe Net Domestic Abuse and Support Services. We put together goodie bags full of treats, games, crafts and of course easter eggs for the refugee children.

What’s next?

As always, alongside our cleaning, Made Mint will do all we can to help local charities. Blackpool Salvation Army have recently made an appeal for food to support people struggling with food poverty through meals at Blackpool Salvation Army’s Bridge Project and by providing emergency food parcels in times of crisis. But supplies are beginning to run low, so we are looking into doing a huge food collection. Details to follow…

Finally, a huge thank-you to everyone who donated, your kindness is greatly appreciated!
