A Preston accountancy firm has donated 350 Easter eggs to the Salvation Army to be given to struggling families this Easter.

MHA Moore and Smalley delivered the Easter eggs to the food bank in Harrington Street in time for Good Friday, to be distributed in food parcels in Preston and South Ribble.

Natalie Thomas, community project leader at the Salvation Army Preston centre, said: “With the current situation, our food donations have been seriously impacted so it’s lovely to have this generous contribution and be able to give some much needed treats in our food parcels.”
