Easter Egg Appeal at Fairhill Shopping Centre

GIVE a child a smile this Easter is what the Fairhill Shopping Centre is asking the good people of Ballymena and beyond. The Centre, which has partnered with Macmillan Cancer Support for the year, is asking for customers to purchase an extra egg, or two, and donate it in their Easter garden in the main mall.

The Easter eggs will go to families who are affected by cancer.

Natalie Jackson, the Fairhill Centre Manager said, “This Easter at the Fairhill Shopping Centre, we wanted to be able to give to those who are having a tough time at the moment and living with cancer. So, we are appealing to our many customers when buying an egg, to buy an extra one or two, so that we, with the help of Macmillan Cancer Support, can give a child a smile this Easter with our Easter Egg Appeal, as every egg you shell out will go to a family affected by cancer.

“For many of us, the Easter holidays are a time for family. For just a small amount of money you can help another family and let them know you are thinking of them. We will be very appreciative of any egg, small or big, being left in our Easter garden on the main mall.

“And hopefully there will be plenty of smiles whether giving or receiving the Easter eggs!”

The Fairhill Shopping Centre in Ballymena will be collecting Easter eggs until Tuesday 23 April, so make sure you have time to donate!

Over the Easter weekend, the Fairhill Shopping Centre is also running various kids’ entertainment from littl’uns drama workshop to crafts’ experience including face painting where kids will receive a free set of Peter Rabbit bunny ears. There will be egg-ploring to find the dinosaur egg and egg-citing adventure to find out who stole the golden egg.

Activities take place on Easter Saturday with the crafts’ experience on Easter Monday. These events will be located in a kid’s corner outside Next and New Look.

Natalie continued; “Easter can be a long period with the children’s school holidays and the Fairhill Shopping Centre wanted to be able to help parents keep the kids entertained. What’s not to like about an Easter egg hunt!”
