This year, Ford & Stanley collected a record number of Easter Eggs for Children First Derby!
Easter is a time to celebrate and spend time with those close to us. But for some, Easter can be one of the hardest times of the year.
This is why they launched ‘The Ford & Stanley Easter Egg Appeal 2019’.
The appeal was simple: donate as many Easter Eggs as possible to charity.
They set a goal to beat their 2018 donation of 60 Easter Eggs to Children First Derby – a local charity they have built a strong relationship with over the past couple of years. Based in Derby, Children First Derby work with vulnerable children, young people and families to make a positive impact in their lives and in the local community. They do exceptional work all year round, but will provide especially vital support for under-privileged families this holiday period.
Ford & Stanley used their connections to call on all walks of the Rail Industry to help achieve their goal. It’s safe to say they were not disappointed!
Thanks to support from many of industry friends including Ricardo, Rail Forum Midlands and Rail Media… they successfully beat their target of 60 eggs!
Together, they were able to collect over 130 eggs – meaning they achieved more than double their 2018 total!!
For some children, this will be the only Easter Egg they receive this year. So the Ford & Stanley team would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who got involved – regardless of how small a donation may appear – it will make the world of difference to someone.
