The Huntress Group recruitment agency, based in London, donated a mountain of more than 200 Easter eggs to The Children's Society. A gift to some of the country’s most disadvantaged children, the eggs were presented to staff at the charity’s headquarters offices in London last week.

Lydia Raw, The Children’s Society’s Partnership Development Executive, said: 'Thank you so much to the Huntress Group for this generous gesture. These eggs will make a lovely Easter treat for children in our projects.'

Our clients have whole-heartedly supported us and we are really pleased to have donated and collected so many Easter eggs on behalf of The Children’s Society.'

The Easter eggs will be distributed to the charity's various projects this week.
