Last chance for Love in a Bag’s Easter donations

Love in a Bag Easter
Join Orla and make your donation before the 5 April.

Love in a Bag Bedford is asking generous Bedfordians to join their latest campaign to donate Easter eggs to some of the Borough’s most vulnerable children and adults.

Since launching last Christmas, the Love in a Bag Bedford project has donated hundreds of bags and care packs to charities and organisations around Bedford.

At the beginning of March, organiser Mel Stratton announced the Easter campaign and has received over 200 chocolate eggs which have been distributed to ten local charity groups.

“We’ve already managed to deliver hundreds of eggs,” said Mel. “It’s made an amazing difference and with just one more week to donate, we’d love to encourage as many people as possible to get involved.”

If you’d like to donate to this egg-cellent project, drop offs can be made at Amorco Transport on Elms Farm Industrial Estate.  Love in a Bag Bedford is also collecting toiletries for their men’s and women’s care packs. More details can be found on their Facebook page.

The deadline for Easter egg donations is Friday 5 April.


Now more than ever, we need your help to fund the Bedford Independent’s quality journalism that serves our community...

We choose to champion editorial independence, meaning we report the facts without bias and can stand up to those in power when we believe it’s needed.

We can give a voice to people in our community whose voices may otherwise not be heard. And we don’t have a paywall, so everyone can read the stories we publish for free.

But in this time of crisis, many news organisations all over the world are facing existential threat, with advertising revenues plummeting. We’re no different.

We work hard every day to bring you news, commentary, entertainment and announcements from across Bedford. We hope that, with your help, we’ll be able to continue this for many years to come.
