Thank you for being egg-cellent this Easter!

Zinc have been absolutely blown away by the generosity of the local community during our recent Easter Eggs donation drive.  We knew that we would get a good amount, but we were overwhelmed by quite how many!

If you didn’t hear about it, we were asking for donations of Easter Eggs to give to people in the Ongar community that were nominated for various reasons; families who need a boost, people who play a big role in or help our community, people on their own or isolated, those under sung and underappreciated heroes amongst us.  And wow – you certainly answered our plea!

We had some very deserving nominations; the eggs went to some very good homes where they hopefully made a real difference to Easter.



Thank you so much to everyone who donated, and a huge thank you to our volunteer Kim O’Shea who co-ordinated the whole thing and to Sue and Corinne for all their help.  Make sure you watch out for when we do it again next year!!

What just one of our recipients had to say:

“I’ve just had a lovely donation of Easter eggs,  we’re having a very testing time this Easter,  and it has made a low time feel much brighter.  Many many thanks”


What a wonderful community we have in Ongar – thank you!
