Primary school pupils will not be going hungry over the holidays as they were given dozens of chocolate Easter eggs from a couple of local businesses.

Thanks to the donations from Andrews Estate Agents, in North Street, Romford, and Glyn Hopkin, in London Road, Romford, staff at Crowlands Primary School were able to hand them out as prizes at the end of its Easter event.

The children took part in a drawing and colouring competition, a raffle, and made festive hats for their Easter bonnet parade, with the winners being given chocolate eggs.

Glyn Hopkin donated 23 Easter eggs to the school as its receptionist Jade Kelly’s daughter Megan-Rose attends the school and the staff were clearly impressed with her bonnet as she came to collect the prizes.

Dean Quy, Nissan brand director at Glyn Hopkin, said: “The staff at Glyn Hopkin Romford know an ‘eggs-cellent’ bonnet when they see one, but Megan-Rose Brown pipped them all with her fantastic homemade Easter hat when she popped in to the showroom.”

Andrews Estate Agents also helped out.

“We have a personal connection with the school,” said new business manager Linvall Williams. “The children of one of our long-standing members of staff have attended the school for many years.

“Crowlands have impressive SEN learning facilities for their students and provide a supportive, effective, fun and safe learning environment for all.”

The London Road school’s business manager, Lynnette Rowley, said: “Crowlands Primary would like to thank the generous donations from Andrews Estate Agents and Glyn Hopkin.

“It is highly appreciated and thanks again for supporting our school.”
