A HUGE Easter egg collection is set to be distributed to needy families through Halesowen's Lifecentral Church.

Thursfields Solicitors held an Easter egg collection at its Halesowen office on Hagley Road and will hand them over to the church, formerly known as Zion Christian Centre.

Pam Arrowsmith, family solicitor at Thursfields, said: “After the success of the Christmas toy appeal, we are once again extremely pleased to be working in conjunction with Lifecentral Church, to collect Easter eggs to be distributed to local children’s charities.

"Thursfields believe it is very important to help the local community.

"We would like to thank all of our clients and local people who donated, in particular Halesowen and Rowley Regis Rotary Club."

Thursfields was established140 years ago and has a tradition of helping local charities and supporting community events.

Dan Murphy, from Lifecentral Church, said: “It’s great to have a supportive relationship with local businesses to further our ongoing engagement with the communities which the church serves as Lifecentral Church, Halesowen and Lifecentral Church, Hagley.”

There are plenty of Easter events throughout Halesowen and Sandwell this weekend.

These include The Half Penny Farm on Joseph Street, has launched a nationwide Easter egg hunt with a difference, searching for local people who go above and beyond for their family and friends.

Five finalists from across the country will be entered into an online vote in which the public will decide on an overall winner to receive a £500 cash prize, and a family meal.

Mark Tennant, general manager at Half Penny Farm, said: “All families have that one member who organises everything, is always there for others and never shies away from offering a helping hand - so here at Half Penny Farm, we think it’s time to celebrate them.

“We want people to nominate a ‘good egg’ this Easter so we can thank the person everyone in the family relies on, and give them the treat they deserve."
