Thousands raised for air ambulance as Easter trail returns to royal West Norfolk estate
The sun shone on volunteers and visitors alike on Saturday as Lynn’s Priory Rotary club staged its Easter egg trail at Sandringham.
The event returned after two blank years caused by Covid.
Officials say the event raised around £4,500 for the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) and saw hundreds of families queue at check-in points on the royal estate.
Participants followed a trail through the woods, where they had to find 18 clues to find eggs which were donated by Kinnertons Chocolates in Fakenham.
Organisers say the total amount raised at this year's event was well in excess of previous years.
EAAA community fundraiser Zoe Harris said: “We are delighted that the Easter Trail returned to Sandringham this year to be bigger and better than ever before, especially after two years away.
“With every mission costing an average of £3,500, our supporters across the region make the difference so that our crew can continue to deliver the pre-hospital 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.”
