LEITH SHOPPING CENTRE DONATES EASTER EGGS TO CHILDREN’S CANCER CHARITY

People throughout the city and customers of the Newkirkgate Shopping Centre in Leith have kindly donated over 60 Easter eggs to Edinburgh based charity, Children with Cancer and Leukaemia, Advice and Support for Parents (CCLASP).

The donation comes following the shopping centre launching an appeal earlier this month to help spread some Easter cheer this year.

The Easter eggs were donated to CCLASP on Thursday 2nd April, so that they could be enjoyed by the children who benefit from the charity at their annual Easter day out on Easter Sunday.

CCLASP was set up over 20 years ago to help support children with Cancer and Leukaemia and their families across Scotland.

Hugh Colville, deputy centre manager for Newkirkgate Shopping Centre, said: “We thank everyone who has kindly bought an extra Easter egg this year and donated it to CCLASP. We hope that everyone’s kind donation will go some way towards helping make the Easter of the children and families who benefit from the support of CCLASP extra special this year.”

Valerie Simpson, CEO and founder of CCLASP, said: “We thank the Newkirkgate Shopping Centre and those throughout the local community who have kindly bought an Easter Egg for those who use our charity. We are looking forward to handing these out at our event on Easter Sunday!”
