St Nicholas Football Club kicked into action to spread a little Easter cheer by handing three hundred pounds worth of Easter eggs to local frontline key workers.

The delivery was made to Yate Fire Station, for their firefighters, families and friends.

The generous donation, from the Yate grassroots football club, will be split between the Firestation and the neighbouring ambulance service.

Andy Paget, vice chairman and welfare officer for St Nic's Football club said:

"As a local football club with over 350 members, we wanted to give something back to the community whilst needing to consider social distancing rules.

"We are aware of our peers donating to other local support groups and charities and we wanted to do our bit but in a slightly different way.

"We therefore came up with the idea of donating the Easter eggs to our frontline key workers, especially our firefighters and ambulance service.

"We wanted to include their families and friends as a way of thanking them for all of the great work they have been doing for our community, and that they continue to do, despite the extra dangers posed by the pandemic.

"Needless to say, the eggs were greatly received.

"We would like to thank Tesco Extra, Yate for their support in making the collection and delivery process so seamless and with minimal risk.

"We look forward to re-uniting with our players and their families as soon as is safe to do so."
