Wiltshire Council and Home Bargains teamed up to give those currently still in schools an Easter treat.

As vulnerable pupils and children of critical workers are still attending during the lockdown, the local authority hatched a plan and arranged for Home Bargains to provide them all with a chocolate Easter Egg

The store have shelled out 1,000 of the eggstra special treats, which teams from Wiltshire Council will be distributing this week

Cllr Pauline Church, Cabinet Member for Children, Education and Skills, said: 

"We have been working closely with our schools who are doing an amazing job offering a place of learning for our vulnerable pupils and for those whose parents are critical to keep Wiltshire moving.

I’m sure schools are planning many fun activities for our pupils to keep them busy. We just wanted to try and do something to mark the fact we know they’re in school but they can still celebrate Easter. Thanks to Home Bargains for their generous offer it has made attending school that bit more special this week."

The cracking gifts will be given to the pupils as they should be on their Easter break currently.
