Ferry Project Director Keith Smith said: 

“For many people Easter is about families and spending time with loved ones over the holidays. 

“But homeless people don’t have that to look forward to. 

“Something as simple as an Easter egg can show them that people care and help them to feel part of the community.”

Counillor Samantha Hoy is Portfolio Holder for Housing at Fenland District Council:

“An Easter egg would make such a difference to people in the Ferry Project’s care, letting them know that the community is thinking about them when times are tough. 

“I hope as many people as possible get behind this appeal.”

Easter eggs can be dropped off at the following locations:

• Ferry Project headquarters, Octavia View, Wisbech – 9am to 6pm, seven days a week

• Wisbech Town Council offices, North Brink, Wisbech – 10am to 3pm, Monday to Friday

• Queen Mary Centre, Queens Road, Wisbech – 9am to 6pm, Monday to Friday

• Fenland District Council Wisbech Customer Services Centre, Boathouse Business Centre, Harbour Square – 9am to 4pm, Monday to Friday; 9am to noon on Saturdays.
