Children at a Nottingham City Homes hostel for homeless families are being given an Easter surprise this week.

One hundred Easter eggs will be delivered to families staying at the 122-bed hostel in St Ann’s, which provides emergency out-of-hours accommodation for families who can be there for just a few days or for up to several months. 

The eggs have been donated by local property services company Ian Williams Ltd, which will be delivering them to residents this week. The company is donating the eggs after working on the hostel itself, applying a coating to doors and desks to reduce the transmission of Covid-19 and help keep residents and staff safe.  

Roscoe Easom, Business Manager at Ian Williams Ltd, said: “The past year has been a struggle for a lot of families, so it’s great to be able to put a smile on a few faces in the area. We look forward to supporting our customer Nottingham City Homes with future projects and brightening up the lives of even more local people and communities.”

Steve Feast, Director of Housing at Nottingham City Homes, said: “It can be incredibly difficult for families who are staying in temporary accommodation, but these little things can make all the difference.

“I know that these eggs will put some smiles on faces this Easter.”
