I would like to publicly thank everyone in HMS Collingwood for the generosity they showed in donating Easter eggs for the appeal

Lieutenant Commander Andrew Ware, HMS Collingwood

So successful was the campaign that the number of eggs collected and monies raised delighted Andrew, Katy and Michelle enabling them to extend their remit.

The head of donations for the Rainbow Centre, Lucy Rumming, was therefore delighted to receive a cheque for £115 and the majority of the Easter Eggs, whilst a large amount of the remaining eggs was delivered to the Rowans Hospice to boost their Meercat project, supporting children experiencing close family bereavement.

Yet more eggs were delivered to the Gosport Food Bank to give disadvantaged children in the local area a sweet treat at Easter.

Lt Cdr Ware said, "I would like to publicly thank everyone in HMS Collingwood for the generosity they showed in donating Easter eggs for the appeal and particularly Kathy in Aggie Weston's for the support through the now legendary 'Bacon Butty' sales. All bacon munched and monies paid went to a very good cause!"
