The Hands On Hair/ The Nubian Times 14th annual Easter Egg Hunt once again took place on Easter Sunday and was to date the most successful.
This year we had more volunteers and attendees than ever before. Greater Manchester Police and PCSOs and the Moss Side Cadets volunteered their time and efforts as well as Manchester City Council facilitating the use of Alexandra Park for over 180 children and parents.
Held every year on Easter Sunday, the Easter Egg Hunt was first established by Whalley Range- based hair salon Hands On Hair for foster children, single parents and low- income families. Since joining forces with The Nubian Times, the event is inclusive of all children and consists of an Easter egg hunt, piñatas, football, hula hooping and races for children and adults who all get prizes, Easter eggs, cakes, face painting and, most importantly, lots of family fun.
Police Constable Colin Barnes said of the spectacular day, “Thank you to Hands On Hair and The Nubian Times for inviting Greater Manchester Police and Moss Side Police Cadets, it’s been an amazing day, we hope we have helped and supported this event with our manual labour, hope we are asked back next year and well done.”
HOH/TNT would like to give a special thank you to our regular volunteers that have dedicated their time and effort year after year and to all sponsors and donators: Friends of Alexandra Park, City South Manchester, Chicken Run, Whalley Range Co-operative, Paper Shop, Fallowfield Superstore, AVA Grocery, Costcutter-Fallowfield triangle, Diamond Radio, Jumbo Express, Mr Khan’s Paper Shop, Bilal Cash and Carry, Khans News Agents, Jumbo Express, Whalley Range Malick’s Superstore and Bargain world.
