Shoppers have egg-ceeded expectations as many donated chocolate treats as part of a shopping centre’s Easter egg appeal.

Over the past few weeks, The Mercury Mall has been asking people to buy an extra chocolate egg when out shopping for their friends and family and donate it by dropping it into the giant Egg Pod at the centre’s help desk.

More than 200 eggs were donated and staff from shopping centre donated them to Ravenscourt Nursing Home, Hornchurch and Emerson Court residential home, Hornchurch.

Centre manager Spencer Hawken said: “We are always amazed just how generous people can be.

“The appeal has been running in the Mall since 2005 and the number of eggs donated continues to rise, thanks to the support of shoppers and Mercury Mall’s retailers.

“Egg giving is synonymous with Easter and Easter eggs are enjoyed by all ages – not just the young but the young at heart too.”
