Over 1600 EGGS-tra special treats were delivered to our young people this Easter.
The YLF Easter Bunny has delivered a whopping 1,640 Easter eggs to young people in need across Kent! This is the most Easter eggs that YLF have ever delivered!

~ Form Fit Out ~ Rotary Club of Maidstone ~ Rochester Rotary ~ Maidstone Grammar School ~ Barn Lodge Childcare ~ Yorkshire Building Society ~ DS Smith ~ The Oak on the Green Bearsted ~ Fremlin Walk ~ Interpersonnel UK ~ Give To Get ~ Charities Aid Foundation ~ Making A Difference To Maidstone ~ Civil Service Insurance Society ~ Community Champions of Morrisons Maidstone ~ GF Electrics ~ One Savings Bank ~ St Marks Primary School Eccles ~ Freedom Leisure ~ Churches of the Parish of Rochester ~
We were also delighted to welcome some special volunteers to YLF HQ to help us sort through the Easter Egg donations ready for the Easter Bunny to distribute. With special thanks to:
~ Paulina and Elliott of Form Fit Out ~ Deputy Lieutenant of Kent, Jo Holmes and the team ~ and our very own YLF young person, Mo.
Social workers and professionals headed to YLF HQ to collect the Easter eggs for young people in need across the county. Cars and vans were piled high with the Easter treats… One social worker said:
“I cannot thank everyone enough for their generosity. These Easter eggs really do make a difference. For some of the young people we support, the knowledge that they are receiving this treat has been the one thing keeping them going through the holidays, so thank you, thank you, thank you.”
We are incredibly grateful to everyone for their amazing support and for helping us to remind young people in Kent that they are thought of and cared for. Thank you.
