A special delivery brought a smile to the faces of dozens of children as travel staff donated Easter eggs to their school.

The team at the Anglia Co-operative travel branch in Thetford's King Street held an Easter eggs appeal for Chapel Road School in Attleborough.

The school looks after children aged from three to 19 with profound learning difficulties and severe and complex needs.

They delivered 58 eggs – one for each pupil – to the school yesterday morning.

Belinda Ashton, the school's business manager, said: 'We are very appreciative of all the support we get from the local community.
