More than £10,000 was raised for a children’s hospice in a two-day Easter egg extravaganza.

The event at Capel Manor in Bullsmoore Lane, Enfield attracted more than 2,100 people to the park over the two days, with a plethora of Easter activities for families.

More than 4,500 eggs had been donated by people from all over Enfield, giving children the chance to take part in the biggest Easter egg hunt since the event began.

A traditional egg and spoon race was also high on the agenda.

All proceeds will be going towards Noah’s Ark Children’s hospice which helps children from Enfield, Barnet and Haringey.

Community fundraising manager Priya Singh said:  “This year’s event has been our best ever, we’re truly overwhelmed by all the support we have received.

“In particular I want to thank all those individuals and businesses including LoveYourDoorstep, who donated Easter eggs, Rotary Club of Edmonton for organising and running the popular egg and spoon race; Skewbald Theatre for their imaginative theatre shows; the amazing Zoom Rockman for hosting two Comic Book workshops and our fantastic volunteers and community supporters who helped set up and run stalls at the event.

“Thanks also to all those people who came along to the event.  The money raised at this event will ensure that Noah’s Ark is able to continue to provide much needed support and services to local children and their families."
