Underprivileged children across north Norfolk are set to receive a surprise this Easter.

Pupils at Beeston Hall School have donated 91 chocolate Easter eggs to Cromer and District Foodbank as part of their Feed to Read initiative to mark national book week.

Cromer and District Foodbank, which operates distribution centres in Holt, Sheringham, Cromer, Aylsham, North Walsham and Stalham, distributed 24 tonnes of food in the last year - enough to feed 2,184 people for three days.

Project Manager Ella King said: 'This means every child whose family need to use the service of the Foodbank over Easter will receive an Easter egg.'
