This year Metro Rod are rounding up the North East for an Easter Egg Collection, with the aim to supply local food bank with as many as possible! An Egg-cellent project for you to get involved in, everyone deserves a bit of chocolate at Easter!
Easter is just around the corner, you may have a few people in mind of who you’re buying one for this year, or even one for yourself! Well spread the love and buy an extra egg (or 2) and bring them over to our Morpeth based office before Tuesday 16th of April. Where we will then donate them to Wansbeck Valley Food Bank later that day.
Unit 1, Craig Court, Coopies Lane, Coopies Field, Morpeth, NE61 6JT

Metro Rod North East have for a number of years spend the run up to Christmas collecting Selection Box’s to donate to local food banks along with gathering & acting as a drop off point for Mission Christmas; a charity appeal for Christmas presents for Local disadvantaged children and families. This enables us to do our part and involve the whole team, helping to make a difference to other families Christmas day.
From this we wanted to continue our efforts throughout the year, along with our regular donation of non-perishable foods to Wansbeck Food Bank we wanted to send the Easter Bunny their way!
Our amazing team are joining together along with their friends and family members to collect the Easter Eggs, If people have been unable to buy or bring in eggs we have been more than happy to accept a donation and purchase the eggs for you, I think the local stores just think we love chocolate, which we do… but have been amazed during our shopping spree’s when the general public queries what we are doing and make a contribution. We thank you all for this kindness.
So C’mon, Share some love through an Easter Egg!
