Staff for Welwyn Hatfield’s train company have helped seriously ill local children by giving over 900 chocolate eggs to the hospice that cares for them.

Govia workers across the Great Northern Thameslink routes donated 451 cream eggs, a figure matched by the company, before they were handed to Keech Hospice in Luton.

The hospice, which cares for children across Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire, launched an appeal for Cadbury Creme Eggs to supplement its knitted chicks.

Govia station manager Sara Turner said: “We were amazed by the generosity of staff across the network to support Keech’s work - we never expected to have so many eggs to donate.”

Passenger service director Stuart Cheshire said: “Since last summer our teams have helped raise over £1,000 for Keech and I’m delighted to see even more people getting involved to support their wonderful work.”
