Newton the Easter Bunny has presented Grantham charities with their share of the money he raised through travelling the streets of Grantham aboard a float.
Families dropped money in buckets, which was split between Grantham Foodbank, Grantham Deaf Children’s Society and equipment for pupils of Huntingtower Primary School.
Representatives were invited to a special assembly at the school to collect their cheques.
Parade organiser and parent of a pupil at Huntingtower Tess Sheehy said: “They were grateful and gave us all a small talk on how the money would be used to benefit others and assured us that the money would be kept for help within the community. As we are a community school that is, of course, what we want.
“Thank you to everyone involved for their tremendous hard work and effort, for the lovely letters of support in the Journal but most importantly to the kind and generous people of Grantham who made donations for these very worthwhile charities.
“Thank you very much and see you again next Easter.”
