100 Easter eggs donated by Chamber member

Sam Pella and the donated eggsA Nottinghamshire family business is helping to ensure families dependent on food banks don’t miss out on Easter this year after donating 100 chocolate Easter eggs to Framework.

Pellacraft, which is based in Mansfield, Nottingham, supplies a wide range of promotional merchandise to companies, trade unions and other memberships based organisations.

The company was founded in 1981 and has built its reputation based on placing people before profit.

The Easter eggs will be distributed to Framework service users at Forward House and Elizabeth House in Nottingham, who will be given an egg after their Easter meal.

Eggs will also be handed out to the young people's service group based in Ashfield, who are now planning an Easter egg hunt, as well as other service users that attend other Framework support service locations.

Commenting, Pellacraft Director, Sam Pella said, “Pellacraft wanted to donate Easter Eggs to show that people do care.

"Increasingly, the use of food banks and homelessness is becoming the norm. This is a heartbreaking thought in this day and age and should not be happening in places like the UK.

"I know it’s only a piece of chocolate that most of us take for granted, but hopefully this gesture will make someone's day and take a burden off another.”

Andrea Carver, from Framework said, “We’d like to thank Pellacraft for thinking of our service users at Framework at Easter. The Easter eggs will help to make the people who live in our services feel valued and show that their community care.”

Framework is a charity and housing association dedicated to helping homeless people, preventing homelessness, and promoting opportunities for vulnerable and excluded people to change the direction of their lives.

Framework was founded on 1 July 2001 when Nottingham homelessness charities, Macedon and Nottingham Help the Homeless Association (NHHA) merged.

Framework aims to change and save lives in three main ways: by preventing homelessness, by helping homeless people, and by helping people to live independent lives.
