Donations can be handed in until March 20

Erith residents are invited to donate an Easter egg as part of a charity drive for a local children’s hospice.

Demelza Hospice looks after children with life threatening or life-limiting illnesses, as well as providing support for the wider family.

To back the charity, Erith Riverside Shopping centre is running an Easter egg drive, handing in donated eggs to the children who use the hospice.

Shoppers can drop their eggs off at the Matalan, Iceland and Wilko stores inside.

Barry Owen, centre manager of Erith Riverside Shopping Centre, said: “We hope to spread some Easter joy to Demelza Hospice by running this appeal.

“It is an amazing charity which works extremely hard to provide support for children and their families across South East London, Kent and East Sussex, and we are excited for the opportunity to give something back.”

Shoppers have until March 20 to hand in their donation.
