Last week staff at Young’s Seafood Limited sites in Scotland pooled their efforts to gather as many Easter eggs as possible in time to make a special delivery to vital local charities.

At the Young’s Fraserburgh, Macrae Edinburgh, Pinneys and Young’s Annan sites Young’s Seafood staff managed to gather more than 100 Easter eggs to present to local charities.

Lorna Mulholland, Service Manager at Children 1st said: “The team at Young’s Seafood Ltd in Fraserburgh have very kindly donated Easter Eggs for the children we work worth in the North East. A big thank you to Young’s for your generous and thoughtful gift.”

Pete Ward, chief executive of Young’s Seafood Limited said: “This Easter at Young’s Seafood we wanted to do something special for local charities near all of our sites.

“We’re delighted with the huge response we’ve had from staff who have donated Easter Eggs in their hundreds and have made it possible for us to make this small gesture of our support and appreciation for the fantastic work charities like Children 1st do.”

Darren Beacham, managing director of Young’s Fraserburgh, added: “At Young’s Fraserburgh we chose to donate our Eggs to Children 1st, the incredible work they do to support children and families across Scotland is an inspiration to us all. I want to especially thank our HR Manager, Des McMenamin for all his efforts to organsise the donation and collect Easter Eggs, none of this would have been possible without him.”

Children 1st, support vulnerable families with practical advice and support in difficult times.
