BUSINESS bosses have been playing Easter Bunny by delivering chocolate eggs to sick and needy children.

Noble Recruiting, based on the Burnt Mills Industrial Estate in Basildon, have collected around 800 Easter Eggs from local businesses and clients.

On Thursday staff travelled to Southend, Basildon and Broomfield Hospitals’ children’s wards, St Luke’s Hospice, Carer’s Choices and J’s Hospice to hand out the chocolate treats.

David Noble, company director, said: “This is something we have been doing for about seven years now.

“It’s nice to be able to give something back to the local community and we want to thank all the businesses who donated to the collection, for their generosity.”
