WORCESTER care home residents received an egg-stra special surprise thanks to a kind-hearted St John's woman.

Lydia Repton delivered 40 chocolate eggs to her local care home, Regent Residential Care Home in School Road, in the run up to Easter.

"I am so pleased the residents enjoyed their eggs - I wanted to spread some Easter cheer," she said.

"With the help from my own friends, family and members from the City Church I was able to do so."

Her surprise donation ensured all the residents had a chocolate treat for Easter Sunday, as well as the chocolate bunnies given to them by the care home.

Thelma Breeze, 86, said: “It was such a lovely idea for Lydia to donate all these eggs, it really shows how kind people are.”

Fellow resident, Glenis Davis, 95, added: “It was so kind to donate all these eggs. I really enjoy this time of year as it’s always been a time I’ve spent with my family.”

The Sanctuary Care home’s activities leader Bridie Gray added: “We were just overwhelmed with Lydia’s kindness, it was such a lovely surprise and our residents were smiling from ear to ear as they thought it was such a lovely gesture.”
