THE ANNUAL Easter Egg appeal from Kilwinning Charity man, Michael Kirkum, has started for 2018.

The intrepid supporter of Crosshouse Hospital and other local causes looks to eclipse the 700 eggs he and his family gathered last year.

It follows on from the Christmas selection box appeal and over the next few weeks Michael is hoping locals will rally round and help him and his family collect as many eggs as possible.

If you would like to donate to the cause, you can do so by dropping off Easter Eggs at either Billy’s Babers or T Baird Optician in Saltcoats or you can contact Michael directly through Facebook and he will arrange to pick up the eggs from you.

Michael will donate the majority of the eggs to the Children’s Ward at Crosshouse Hospital and any left over will be given to local groups and good causes in the Kilwinning area.
