Real Easter Egg: Donations announced and last chance to order




This week we will be taking a cheque to Traidcraft Exchange for more than £14,000 and sending a cheque to Funzi Bodo for £8,000 in support of their work.


This represents a donation of more than 50% of our profits and gets us past our £250,000 to charitable causes target. In addition we have given more than £45,000 to support the work of Fairtrade and paid the growers of sugar and cocoa a cash sum above the market price.


This has only been possible with the support of our customers, so thank you.


Shop closing


Did you know that 50% of Easter eggs are bought in Holy Week (next week)? So don't worry if you are only just getting round to hunting for Real Easter eggs.


Our shop closes later today so this is your last chance to buy direct from us. We give free delivery on all orders over £45 up to our final order date of 4pm on 20th March. The shop is here. <http://meaningfulchocolate.cmail19.com/t/r-l-jyeikkk-ktiuijlikr-j/>

Just enter the code special2 at check out on our shop or click the link here <http://meaningfulchocolate.cmail19.com/t/r-l-jyeikkk-ktiuijlikr-t/> and the delivery discount of £4.95 will be added automatically at checkout.

The Real Easter Egg is being sold by ASDA, Tesco, Morrisons and Waitrose this year (£3.99)

NOTE: Sainsbury's is not stocking. To complain call 0800 636 262. ASDA responded so it does work to ask.
