RAF Shawbury Easter Egg Donation to Hope House

On Monday 10th April, RAF Shawbury personnel visited the children of the Hope House Children’s Hospice at Oswestry.

RAF Shawbury community once again generously donated Easter Eggs for Hope House Children’s Hospice. In total, over 150 Easter Eggs were donated. Station personnel, their dependents, contractors, and visitors all contributed to this mountain of Easter Eggs. As well as the Easter egg collection staff in the stations clothing store organised an Easter Hamper Raffle. The amount raised was £221.00 which was also delivered to Hope House.

To give the children another treat a Defence Helicopter Flying School Squirrel helicopter flew to hope house to deliver the Easter Eggs and Donation. The helicopter was piloted by Officer Commanding Central Flying School (H) (CFS(H)) Squadron Leader Allison and Flight Lieutenant Brown. Along with the collection organiser, Senior Aircraftman Richie Hill they delivered the eggs to the residents who also took the opportunity to look around the helicopter.

Hope House Children’s Hospice is a long term charity supported by CFS(H) in recognition of all the work the hospice do day in day out to improve the lives of children.

All at Hope House were overwhelmed with the response and donations further expressing their thanks for the support that the RAF Shawbury community shows them at the hospice.

I would like to personally thank all those who donated Easter eggs and those who offered support in the organizing of this event. Special thanks to; all staff within clothing stores, the HIVE, Central Registry and the Inter Services Football Team.
