With Easter somewhat overshadowed by the current pandemic, Sandy and James Easdale, the owners of McGill’s Buses decided to give the Easter Bunny a helping hand this year.
The bus company’s owners donated 50 Easter eggs to Inverclyde charity Home-Start, which offers help to local families, through home visits and support groups.
McGill’s Buses owner, Sandy Easdale handed over the mountain of eggs to Home-Start’s Jim McEleny, at the company’s Greenock depot.
Sandy Easdale said
“Home-Start is carrying vital work, supporting many families across Inverclyde, who have been impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic in a variety of ways. James and I have been supporting Home-Start for some time and recognise the importance of the service they provide in our community.
“Given the current situation, many children may be going without an Easter egg this year. I hope these eggs bring a little bit of cheer to local families supported by Home-Start at this tough time.”
Jim McEleny, co-chair of Home-Start said
“Our staff and volunteers are providing limited support to local families, observing social distancing instructions. Phone calls, FaceTime, essential shopping for food and nappies etc.
“We are so grateful to McGill’s for thinking of us and providing eggs for the children we are supporting.
“Gestures like this make me so proud of the people and business community of Inverclyde.”
