The eggs have provided a great boost for these young patients and their families since being delivered.

Hannah Greenham, said: “We’re delighted to have played our part in helping the charity ensure that children and young people can live their lives to the full as much as possible. CLIC Sargent is close to the stores heart as many of our colleagues have been touched by the fantastic work that they do."

The eggs were collected by volunteer representative David Ball and delivered to CLIC Sargent’s Homes from Home, CLIC House and Sam’s House based in Bristol.

71 Wiltshire families were supported by CLIC Sargent in 2013 with free accomodation at the charities Homes from Home.

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Ben Herbert said: “We are absolutely thrilled that Sainsbury’s has made this wonderful contribution. We really appreciate the hard work and generosity that has gone in to the collection – every egg donated was greatly appreciated by the children and young people."
