Reed Accountancy and Reed Business Support, based at White Cross, visited the Royal Lancaster Infirmary children’s ward and the Unique Kidz & Co charity to deliver Easter eggs.

“We found it really rewarding to actually be able to give some of the eggs out to the children directly and put a little smile on both their faces as well as their parents,” said a Reed spokesman.

Reed thanked the following organisations for donating: Lakeland Limited, Oxley, BillerudKorsnas, Lars Communications, Strongdor, Havwoods, Gilbert Gilkes & Gordon Ltd, Lake District National Park, Head, Kendal Nutricare, Tulchan Textiles, Taylor Robertson & Willett Ltd, Oglethorpe Sturton & Gillibrand Solicitors, Standfast and Barracks, Cannon Hygiene, InTouch, Optimum Coatings, Lines & Jones Ltd, Lancaster & Morecambe College, Balltec, NJO Technology Ltd, Sysco International, Castle Industrial Supplies Ltd, Aggregate Industries, Gazelle and Poulton Children’s Centre.
