It is the second consecutive year MHA Moore and Smalley have made an Easter donation.

Damian Walmsley, partner at MHA Moore and Smalley’s Preston office, delivered the Easter eggs to Preston Salvation Centre.

He said: “The partners at MHA Moore and Smalley have traditionally bought all staff an Easter egg each year.

“Last year, with staff working from home during the first lockdown, we instead decided to donate the eggs to help bring some Easter cheer during especially tough times due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“We’re proud to be making this donation again, which will hopefully brighten up somebody’s Easter weekend with so many people still affected by the pandemic.”

Natalie Thomas, community project leader at the Salvation Army Preston centre, said: “The pandemic has affected our food bank donations and other services while demand for our help has been on the rise so it’s great that we’ll once more be able to include some treats with our Easter parcels.”
