Specsavers Redruth were proud to once again support the annual Easter egg hunt, organised by the Camborne, Redruth and district Lions Club.
Fun despite the rain
The clouds and down pour did not dampen any spirits with 240 children plus parents, grandparents and family members joined the spirit of the annual Easter egg hunt on Portreath beach.
Lions charity fundraising
Thanks to support from businesses like Specsavers £600 was raised from the beach raffle and sale of excess chocolate eggs.
Little Harbour, children’s hospice in St Austell also received 50 eggs that were generously donated as Easter gifts.
Alan Hampton from Camborne Redruth and District Lions Club said: ‘Many thanks for your sponsorship of our 14th Annual Easter Egg hunt on Portreath Beach. Unfortunately the weather forecasters got it right and it poured down with rain at 2pm – the start time but everybody went away happy and each participating child had an Easter Egg for their efforts.’
A word from the store director
Jonathan Eva, Redruth store director, said: ‘We were delighted to support the Easter egg hunt again. It’s a great day out that supports some very important local causes. Thank you to the Lions Club for organising another super family event.’
