Almost 1,000 eggs will be hidden around Enfield parkland as part of an Easter egg hunt in aid of a children’s hospice.

Hundreds of people have donated eggs for the hunt at Capel Manor in Bullsmoor Lane, Bulls Cross in aid of Noah’s Ark Hospice in Barnet.

Organised by community group Love Your Doorstep, local business owners have themselves competed to donate the most eggs, resulting in a surge in donations.

Love Your Doorstep founder Emma Rigby said: “This is the third year we have organised this event and it has just exploded this year. Businesses have been super-competitive and that has been great for the cause.”

The group will meet at local boutique Wild Daisy in Bush Hill park with all the donated eggs before taking them up to Capel Manor.

The hunt will take place on Friday, April 11 and Saturday, April 12 with all proceeds going to the children’s hospice.
