With Easter only next week now, why not turn it into a fundraising opportunity for MS-UK and have an Easter Egg Party! For those of you who are about to run the Virgin Money London Marathon, it would be a great little event to boost your fundraising.
You could charge £5 a person. This would include an Easter egg hunt, refreshments and crafts/games. There are many decorations now available to buy at places including Poundland, The Works and Wilkinson’s that are super ‘cheap’ to buy.
For the sandwiches we filled them with jam then used Easter Cookie cutters to cut them out. Easter nest cakes are super easy to make too, and I’ll include the recipe at the bottom of this post. Scones and hot cross buns also go down a treat. If the weather is really nice, why not have a BBQ and charge a little more to come to the event?
Easter egg hunts are not just for the children! How about hiding one really small chocolate egg that the adults have to find? The winner gets a bottle of wine!
Craft sets pre done are available to pick up cheaply to entertain the children. There are also a variety of games you could do like pin the tail on the rabbit and an egg roll by hard boiling some eggs and see who can roll their egg the furthest!
If you don’t have the space for a party, why not have an Easter themed bake sale at your workplace? Colleagues could help bake cakes for you to sell.
Wishing you a cracking good time!
A big thank you to the Walker family for your time!
Easter nest cakes
225g/8oz plain chocolate, broken into pieces
2 tbsp golden syrup
75g/3oz cornflakes OR Rice Crispies
Mini eggs to decorate
Line a 12-hole fairy cake tin with paper cases.
Melt the chocolate, golden syrup and butter in a bowl set over a pan of gently simmering water or in the microwave. Gently stir in the cornflakes or Rice Crispies until all of the cereal is coated in the chocolate.
Divide the mixture between the paper cases and press 3 chocolate eggs into the centre of each nest. Chill in the fridge for 1 hour, or until completely set.
