8,000 surplus Easter Eggs have been donated to Wiltshire Council, so they can hand them out to critical workers and vulnerable residents across the county.

They've come from Nestle - the world's largest food and beverage company.

The free treats have now been delivered to the council's Wellbeing Hub in Salisbury, which has been set up to support people in need during the COVID-19 crisis.

The chocolate will be added to the emergency food parcels they hand out.

In addition to being distributed in emergency food parcels, the eggs have been delivered far and wide across Wiltshire to foodbanks and frontline staff working in schools, nurseries, social care, NHS, police, fire and rescue and refuse collectors to say a big 'thank you' for the amazing work they're doing to deliver critical services during the coronavirus crisis.

Cllr Philip Whitehead, Leader of Wiltshire Council, said: 

"We're very grateful to Nestle for donating these Easter eggs for us to distribute across the county to vulnerable people and critical workers in Wiltshire. 

Our frontline services have worked tirelessly during the pandemic and their commitment and contribution is hugely appreciated. This is just a little way we can say 'thank you' for their amazing efforts and provide a treat for the most vulnerable members of our community who have been particularly affected by COVID-19".

Anyone who would like information, or support, from the Wellbeing Hub can call their helpline on 0300 003 4576.
