Plumbers help spread Easter egg-citement at Peterborough charity!
A plumbing company has been helping to spread some Easter joy with an eggs-citing delivery to Peterborough Women’s Aid.
Waterworx Plumbing and Heating Services in St Ives contacted Peterborough-based national children’s charity Embrace Child Victims of Crime to say they were keen to help children in need this spring and offered to donate some Easter eggs.
Because of the current COVID-19 restrictions, the majority of Embrace’s support services are currently on-line making it difficult to deliver eggs to individual children.
However, staff from Embrace contacted staff at Peterborough Women’s Aid who were really grateful for the chocolate donation.
Kym Moussi, director of Waterworx, said: “As a local business we believe it’s really important to support our local community, local businesses and local charities.
“At Christmas our engineers bought gifts for children in a local children’s home and we had heard about the great work Embrace does and wanted to support them.
“We’ve been totally overwhelmed by everyone’s generosity - we’ve had over 80 eggs donated.”
Anne Campbell, chief executive of Embrace Child Victims of Crime, said: “Thank you to everyone at Waterworx for their generosity. We know that Women’s Aid will make sure they are delivered to children who have been through so much and will really appreciate their gifts.”
Clare Taylor, chief executive of Peterborough Women’s Aid, said: “We are truly grateful to Embrace for thinking of us. The children will be delighted that they have been in people’s thoughts and it will certainly bring a smile to their faces.
“It will add to their positive experience of staying in the refuge as some children may not have celebrated Easter in this way before.”
Some of the eggs were also sent to Cambridge Women’s Aid. To find out more about Embrace Child Victims of Crime visit or call 0345 60 999 60.
