A collection of Easter eggs will be sent to the children looked after by a Lincolnshire hospice.

Ian James, who works in Costcutter in Hornsby Road, is collecting the eggs for St Andrew’s Hospice in Grimsby, which cares for children with terminal illnesses.

Ian regularly raises money for the hospice with collection tins in the store and raises hundreds of pounds each year, which goes towards buying equipment for the hospice.

A few years ago the Journal reported on Ian’s collection of toys for the hospice to be delivered for Christmas. The collection was a great success.

Ian began collecting for St Andrew’s when his friend Lauren Alexander, originally from Grantham, worked at the hospice as a fund-raiser.

Ian said: “We collect all year round for the hospice. We have collection tubs in the store and we collect £300 to £400 a year. I like to do something a little bit different as well so now I am collecting Easter eggs. I’m looking to the community again to put a smile on the kids’ faces.”

If you would like to donate one or more Easter eggs to the hospice drop them off at Costcutter during opening hours.
