It's all too easy to get caught up in the challenges of everyday life, and sometimes all you want is a moment to sit down and take a breather - especially, at this time of year, with Easter treats to brighten your space.
That's why we were so excited when our kind suppliers came forward with their donations. Our generous suppliers and contrators donated money and eggs towards our Easter event and 33 Peaks & Plains staff volunteered to pack and deliver them!
We delivered 631 eggs to about 450 customers.
We would have loved to deliver a treat to all our customers in our 5,000 homes but we didn't have the time or capacity to do this unfortunately.
Take a look at these photos of our staff packing and delivering Easter baskets, and see what we've been up to.
