Annual SAFER LBG Easter Egg Hunt
Easter egg hunters of all ages joined the Easter Bunny and volunteers from SAFER LBG, Guernsey's charity for sufferers of domestic abuse, to find hundreds of easter eggs hidden all over Government House's grounds.
Once the excited hunters had collected a complete set of all the different coloured eggs, they were able to exchange them for a proper chocolate Easter Egg. Towards the end of the morning the hunt shifted towards finding the one special 'golden egg', the lucky finder of which was able to exchange it for the star prize, a massive chocolate easter egg that was quite a lot larger than some of the hunters themselves.
Human egg hunters were joined in their quest by a very enthusiastic canine egg hunter, Milo, who unfortunately wasnt allowed chocolate eggs as they are harmful to dogs. Nonetheless he enjoyed greeting the Easter Bunny in his own inimitable style!
The hunt was a sell out almost from the moment tickets became available, with all proceeds going to support SAFER's crucial work of raising awarness of and combatting the effects of both physical and mental domestic abuse in the Bailiwick. Lady Corder, who is a patron of SAFER, said that 'the SAFER Easter egg hunt was a great success last year and we were delighted to be able to host it again this easter. It is an excellent way of rasing funds to help SAFER's hugely important work to continue'
