Local Health and Safety Training and Consultancy firm has donated 100 Easter Eggs for children’s charity CHICKS.

SSG Training and Consultancy, based in Plymouth, have been collecting eggs for CHICKS for the past four years. This year they contributed an amazing 100 eggs; beating last year’s record of 69.

CHICKS, Country Holidays for Inner City Kids, is a nationwide charity providing free respite breaks to disadvantaged children all over the UK. Over 14,800 children have been provided with these breaks since the charity was founded in 1992.

Every week from February to December children stay at one of the two retreats CHICKS has across the country; Coastal in Cornwall and Daleside in Derbyshire. Here the children can participate in new activities and enjoy new experiences in the countryside.

Denise Maclean, Marketing Manager at SSG, said: ‘A big thank you to the generous SSG team members who have helped collect so many Easter Eggs for such a worthwhile charity.’
