UPDATE: Stuart Anderson MP would like to thank everyone who gave so generously to this initiative. Stuart and the team from Thaper Food and Wine store have been delivering Easter Eggs to NHS services across the constituency, including over 300 to Compton Care.
Stuart Anderson MP has supported an appeal made by a Wolverhampton business for donations of Easter Eggs that are to be given to local NHS staff and charities. The appeal is being led by Prince Masih, who is the proprietor of a local business - Thaper Food and Wine Store. It is based at 254 Hordern Road in Whitmore Reans, the heart of Stuart’s constituency of Wolverhampton South West.
Thaper Food and Wine Store has set itself the target of donating 1000 Easter eggs to staff and volunteers who have been at the forefront of Wolverhampton’s response to COVID-19. It builds on the success of a similar campaign led by the same business last year. It saw 500 Easter Eggs donated to staff at New Cross Hospital in Wolverhampton.
The business has now made a public appeal for donations of Easter Eggs and monetary gifts to buy Easter eggs from members of the public in an effort to achieve their goal. Thaper Food and Wine Store is accepting donations of Easter eggs as well as cash to buy Easter eggs until Thursday the 1st of April 2021.
Those able to donate can call Prince Masih on 07475738571.
Stuart Anderson MP said: “I am proud to champion the great work being undertaken by Thaper Food and Wine Store in their endeavour to donate 1000 Easter eggs to local NHS staff and charities. Small acts of kindness can go a long way, and I know that this campaign will bring a lot of joy to local people after a really challenging year. Prince Masih is a brilliant community organiser who goes above and beyond to help local people. I hope that as many as possible will get involved with this great initiative.”
Proprietor of Thaper Food and Wine Store Prince Masih said: “Last year, our aim was to donate 200 Easter Eggs to New Cross Hospital as a token of our gratitude for their continued hard work and perseverance throughout the pandemic. By asking our family and friends, we managed to donate 500 eggs. This year, we’re aiming to donate 1000 eggs to hardworking NHS staff and charities in Wolverhampton. We hope to achieve this with the generous support of the community. Any donations, whether it be an Easter egg or a monetary donation, will be greatly appreciated.”
