A PAIR of mothers will donate 100 easter eggs to the Alexandra and Birmingham Children's Hospital as a thank you for the care their children received.

Jude Prosser and Becky Brandon have collected the chocolate treats with the help of Facebook friends, colleagues and family members, after their daughters had to be cared for at the hospitals due to cancer and diabetes.

Mrs Prosser said: "We both asked on Facebook and it just went manic, everyone was so keen to donate and every donation meant the world to us, whether it was one egg or ten.

"We would like to thank every single person and also supermarkets Tesco and Asda for donating all of the eggs.

"We've really enjoyed it and will hopefully be making it an annual thing."

The eggs will be delivered to the two sites as well as the Worcestershire Royal's children's ward in time for Easter.
