An Easter egg hunt raised £611 for Hornchurch charity First Step.
Employees at Ford Motor Company’s Dagenham South Estate and Virgin Media donated Easter eggs to families who use the charity.
The remaining eggs were used in an Easter Egg hunt at the shopping centre on Good Friday and Easter Saturday and visitors raised funds to provide services to children with severe disabilities and educational needs.
Pupils of RJ Mitchell School also painted a backdrop and Easter pictures to decorate the Easter Garden.
Tricia Cowdrey, CEO of First Step, said: “We are extremely grateful to everyone involved in this wonderful community fundraising project.
