A leading renewable energy firm from Washington has put beams of sunshine onto the faces of dozens of young people after donating Easter eggs.

Advanced Renewable Power Ltd supply, design and fit solar and renewable energy solutions for homes and businesses. Head of Operations, Chris Balmer answered a request for Easter eggs from The Good Egg Partnership and rallied his colleagues to collect as many eggs as possible.

The Good Egg Partnership comprises community radio station Radio Northumberland, Bedlington charity Leading Link and Lodge Temperance from Northumberland Freemasons who together have hatched a plan to provide Easter eggs to good causes throughout the North East. So far eggs have been dropped off at special schools, food banks, care homes, veterans’ charities, and youth centres across the North East.

Radio Northumberland is advertising and coordinating the collection of eggs and Leading Link will help to distribute them to families together with Lodge Temperance who are using their members to coordinate with care homes and schools.

Project organiser Tom Stewart said, “This is something we do every year, but our new partnership with Radio Northumberland and Leading Link will ensure that more people than ever benefit from the generosity of those that have donated money or eggs. We are especially grateful to firms such as AR Power and Chris for being so generous.”

Chris added: “As a responsible provider of renewable energy solutions we know people are struggling with rising gas and electricity costs so if we can make a small difference to many families who are finding things tough this year then the egg collection has been very worthwhile.”

“It was great to donate to this fantastic cause and everyone at AR Power hopes that the recipients of the eggs get the same great big smile we had in donating them.”
