Eggs galore as big hearted Woodyard Garage hands out Easter treats

Correspondent 31st Mar, 2018

A WEBHEATH family run garage has been collecting Easter eggs and donating them to local care homes – and the Alexandra Hospital, writes Sophie Wheeler.

Woodyard Garage on Church Road and the Washford Industrial Estate started collecting chocolate eggs after receiving free eggs from Motaparts Xpress.

Staff decided to send them on to local care home Saltways which provides support and nursing care for physically disabled adults.

Jenna Audley, from Woodyard Garage came up with the idea and posted it on Facebook asking people to donate.

To their astonishment, a grand total of 120 eggs came pouring in with the help of Motaparts Xpress, BMF (Bromsgrove Motor Factors) and HMP Hewell.

Jenna said: “When we ordered a service from Motaparts Xpress we got a free mini egg, I stopped letting the lads eat them and said to the boss it would be great to do something.”

As well as Saltways the eggs went to the League of Friends at the Alex with 30 more eggs destined for Callow Hill Care Home, Parklands.

Jenna added: “We maintain HMP Hewell’s vehicles and when I collected the eggs they had a Santa sack full.”

Customers and locals near both branches have also generously made donations.
