A Hatfield man, pictured here with a volunteer, has played the Easter bunny to make sure that food bank customers don’t miss out on their share of the treats.

He’s already known as Hatfield’s Santa from his previous projects, but last weekend Timothy Muggleton topped his seasonal generosity to take up the role of the Easter bunny.

Every year, a wealth of sweet Easter treats arrive in the shops, but can be expensive and are often a luxury when budgets are tight.

This weekend, Timothy said he did a “mad dash” to hop over to the supermarkets at the first sign of price reductions and put as many eggs into his basket as he could.

He donated over 50 eggs to Open Heavens Christian Centre food bank in Hatfield so that children from struggling families wouldn’t miss out.

Open Heavens volunteer Rachel Fabiyi, who received the eggs today on April 3, said the organisation would be distributing the eggs at an event soon.

Timothy has long been an active volunteer and organiser in Hatfield’s community.

Rachel, who volunteers along with her daughter Priscilla, said: “He’s always been a great help.

“It’s good to have someone like that in the community. I really commend him for that to be honest.

“It’s not about the amount you give, it’s about the mind and the heart.”
