Thinking About Easter in January!

Real Easter Egg campaign – ordering now open for churches and individuals

It may seem very early to be thinking of Easter but this very good idea seemed important to promote even at this early date. Not only does it promote the Christian meaning of Easter but the chocolate is Fairtrade.

Last September supermarkets rejected the idea of The Real Easter Egg which is the first and only Easter egg to explain the Christian understanding of Easter on the box. Church schools were asked to help join a campaign to help prove demand by placing orders before Christmas. Thousands of eggs were ordered by schools in quantities ranging from 12 to 400 eggs at a time.

Churches and individuals are invited to join the campaign and place orders for The Real Easter Egg by 31st January 2011. Order forms, posters and flyers can be downloaded from http://www.realeasteregg.co.uk/ Eggs will be dropped off to a single address in early April 2011.

The direct sale price of The Real Easter Egg is £4.50 each which includes a charitable donation, VAT, handling and delivery to a single drop off point. The 125g high quality Fairtrade milk chocolate has to be ordered in multiples of 12.
