At the end of the fun and games there is also a serious side as ‘Lucy’s Easter Eggstravaganza’ is aimed at raising funding for Lucy’s Fund, the charity appeal set up by local woman Lucy Lintott.
Lucy was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease (MND) at just 19-year-old in 2013 – but since has worked tirelessly with a view to raising £100,000 for MND Scotland. So far she has managed to reach the half-way point with £50,000 already having been raised.
‘Lucy’s Easter Eggstravaganza’ kicks off on Saturday at 2pm at the Garmouth Hotel, and over the following two hours will include an Easter Egg trail with games and crafts for pre-school and school age children.
Meanwhile in the Garmouth Village Hall there will be a Pancake Tea served with a ‘yellow’ theme – this will include a raffle, chocolate tombola, stalls and an MND information stand.
Entry to the Easter Egg Trail will be £3 which includes refreshments in the village hall for children taking part, while entry to the Pancake Tea will be by donation to MND Scotland.
