Real Easter Egg: Don't get caught out by early Easter...

Hi,

 

Many of you will be having pancakes today because Lent is almost upon us. When making your pancakes, you are taking part in the old tradition of using up eggs and fat before the start of Lent. The next time an egg would be eaten after Shrove Tuesday would be Easter which is one of the reasons we exchange eggs at Easter.

 

This year Easter is very early - April 1st. Last year, we had thousands of orders in late March and April but that's not possible this year which is why we are asking as many people as possible to place orders by March 6th.

 

If you ordered in late March or April last year, please don't get caught out but get your orders in early March to avoid disappointment. Remember there is free delivery for orders over £45.

 

 

Egg Hunt Now Available in singles

 

 

Our Real Egg Hunt can now be bought in singles. Each hunt comes with six delicious Fairtrade milk chocolate midi eggs. Each egg is wrapped in foil with the words Christ is Risen. Each egg hunt also comes with a cross shaped story/activity book for more fun on Easter Sunday. You can get your hunt and see our egg hunt video here. <http://meaningfulchocolate.cmail19.com/t/r-l-jrurcil-ktiuijlikr-j/>

 

 

Mothers' Union members help with the campaign

 

 

The Real Easter Egg 2018 campaign is designed to help share the Easter story by giving a Real Easter Egg. Mothers’ Union member, Helen Godfrey (pictured above) said; "I have bought these eggs for my own grandchildren. It is so important that we share and celebrate the Easter story with younger generations." More here. <http://meaningfulchocolate.cmail19.com/t/r-l-jrurcil-ktiuijlikr-t/>

Real Easter Egg 2018 School and Youth Group Competition and free resources

 

<http://i8.cmail19.com/ei/r/8A/FE2/F1A/030717/csfinal/ee818375b66e40ae966d0b586e333a36.png>

 

School and Youth Group Competition

 

To celebrate the launch of The Real Easter Egg, a new competition is announced. We would like children to draw their version of what happened on Palm Sunday according to the Bible. Also they could also use a short quotation from the Gospels in their design.

 

The Real Easter Egg is all about sharing the Easter story so we would be fascinated to see how young people visualise what happened that first Holy Week. There will be prizes of £150 for the winning children’s group, primary and secondary school with runner-up prizes of £50. The winning children will each receive a Special Edition Real Easter Egg. Entries need to be with us by 6th March.

 

Entry details

 

The competition is open to primary schools, secondary schools, Sunday schools / Messy Church or other youth groups such as Guides, Boys’ Brigade etc.

 

All entries must be completed on A4 paper. On the back of each entry you need to indicate the name and age of the child, school and a contact number. The contact number should be that of the school or leader of the group only and not the child.

 

Entries should be sent to MCC Basement Suite, 11a Eagle Brow, Lymm, Cheshire, WA13 0LP and must arrive by 5pm on Tuesday 6th March 2018. We regret that we will be unable to return posters or to receive entries via email. The competition is open to all children but limited to one entry per child.

 

We hope that you will be able to support the Real Easter Egg campaign and have some fun with the competition.

 

Winners will be announced online.
