The Northumbria Chapter of the Widows Son’s Masonic Bikers Association have been gifted hundreds of Easter Eggs by generous supermarkets, businesses, individuals and masonic lodges from the Province of Northumberland.

They are now delivering more than 1,500 Easter eggs – in small groups observing Covid-19 regulations – to a number of special schools, food banks, care homes, veterans’ charities and youth centres across Northumberland, North Tyneside and Newcastle in the run up to Good Friday.

Widows Sons Secretary Tom Stewart said: “Everyone has been so generous and I’m really grateful for the help we’ve been given by so many businesses, lodges and individuals but particular thanks must go to a host of Morrison’s stores who have been really egg cellent.”

So far, around 800 eggs have been delivered to Leading Link Bedlington, Cleaswell Hill Special School om Choppington, Hadston House Youth Project, Baccmans Lynemouth, Full Circle Foodbank Ashington, Wansbeck Food Bank, Operation Elf Blyth, and Engage in the Community Blyth.

Julie Butler, Chair of Engage in the Community Blyth, said: “The donation of eggs from Northumberland Freemasons will help so many children in our community.”

Teacher Lauren Caisley, from Cleaswell Hill School, said: “We’d like to say a big thank you to Northumberland Freemasons for the donation of 200 eggs for our children.”
