Easter egg hunt held at Sandringham by King's Lynn Priority Rotary Club raises money for charity





Lynn’s Priory Rotary Club welcomed hundreds of families at its annual Easter egg trail at Sandringham on Sunday.

A whopping 2,000 people took part in the egg hunt around the woods and more than 1,500 eggs were given out at the event which was in aid of the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA).

A total of £5,500 was raised with an added £440 from a soft toy tombola held by EAAA.

The trail started at the squirrel sculpture outside the newly extended children’s play area. From there, it wound its way through the woods, where participants had to find the 18 clues hidden along the way, leading them back to the finish where they collected their chocolate eggs generously supplied by Kinnerton’s Chocolates in Fakenham.

Easter Sunday saw sunny skies as families waited in long queues at the check-in points stretching all the way back to the Visitor Centre before parents and excited children set off with their clue sheets.

Luke Abendroth, community fundraiser at East Anglian Air Ambulance, said “We are delighted with the success of this year’s Easter Egg Trail.

“With every mission costing an average of £3,750, our supporters make the difference, ensuring that our crews can continue to deliver out-of-hospital emergency care at the scene of an incident.

“Thank you to King’s Lynn Priory Rotary who as always have been supportive of the East Anglian Air Ambulance, and to the many volunteers who have given up so much time to run this event.”
