APR Engineering Limited - Easter Egg Appeal


APR Engineering Limited - Easter Egg Appeal

"APR has been associated with the Easter Appeal for the last eleven years.  It all came about when I, as MD of APR Engineering and Vice Chairman of Oakley Motorcycle Club, ‘hatched’ the idea of delivering Easter eggs to local residential homes and hospices.

Initially we all descended in a huge group on hospitals and homes for sick children.  However it soon became apparent that it was money these groups needed, not chocolate!  We then moved our efforts to visiting residential homes for adults with learning difficulties, and splitting into smaller groups so that we could visit more locations.  This system works really well.  The residents look forward to seeing us each year and it’s a really enjoyable day for the bikers.  The Club now delivers over 300 eggs to around seven homes.I am no longer Vice Chairman of the motorcycle club, but still enjoy being involved in the Easter Appeal and leading a group to a home in Kempston, Bedford.

The eggs are really appreciated by the recipients, and any cash donations go to the Club’s charity, the East Anglian Air Ambulance.  To date we have raised over £31,000 for this very worthwhile cause.

I would like to send my sincere thanks to all suppliers and customers of APR who have given generously of their time and money to support us in this very worthwhile event." - Phil Randell, APR Engineering Limited
