The chocolate eggs were donated by Leamington businesses Gap Professional Recruitment and Grupo Antolin.

The Molly Olly team visited community nursing teams in Warwick, Southam and Birmingham from where the nurses will then distribute the eggs to seriously ill children and their siblings in the local community. The deliveries were supported by Warwick courier firm New Horizon Logistics.

Molly Olly’s Wishes was established in 2011 following the death of Rachel and Tim Ollerenshaw’s eight-year-old daughter Molly from a rare kidney cancer. It works to support children with terminal or life-limiting illnesses and their families and help with their emotional wellbeing, grants wishes and donates therapeutic toys and books to both children directly and to hospitals throughout the UK.

Charity founder Rachel Ollerenshaw said: “We had a great day delivering and the community nursing teams in Birmingham were delighted to see us as they rarely, if ever, receive such donations.

“Molly Olly’s have been supported by the team at Gap Professional (formerly Quattro Recruitment) for several years and we are very grateful to them for all the work organising collection of the eggs. Big thanks too to everyone at Grupo Antolin and New Horizon Logistics for their incredible support. There were so many smiles and happy faces, we are delighted to be able to help.“
