Lord Mayor welcomes Easter donations for Birmingham children

Council partner donates eggs for disadvantaged children.

The Lord Mayor of Birmingham has welcomed a generous donation of Easter eggs for the city’s looked after children from a kind-hearted local contractor.

Staff from community regeneration specialist Keepmoat collected 120 individually boxed chocolate eggs through donations made by employees, council staff and subcontractors at their office on College Road.

The eggs were delivered to Lord Mayor Cllr Carl Rice, at the Council House on Tuesday 4th April and will be distributed to the city’s looked after children (children in care) by the council’s Corporate Parents in time for the Easter holidays.

Lord Mayor Cllr Rice said, “On behalf of the city I would like to say a big thank you to Keepmoat’s staff and contractors for their generosity and thoughtfulness. These Easter Eggs will spread some happiness to many of our children.”

Paul Bingham, Project Director at Keepmoat, added, “As we’re getting ready for the Easter break, we need to remember that there are children out there who sadly won’t get a visit from the Easter bunny. At Keepmoat, we believe in giving back to the communities in which we are working and we hope that these chocolate eggs will bring a bit of joy to children who are living in care this Easter.”

Keepmoat is currently working on behalf of Birmingham City Council to deliver responsive repairs and maintenance, as well as refurbishment works, to over 8,000 council-owned homes in the north of the city.
