Brenda Ackers, president of St Annes Rotary, visited the groups bearing chocolate gifts to thank them all for the part they have played during the pandemic and over the years.

First stop was the ambulance crew at Ansdell who relished the treats as a part of a national Rotary initiative with Woodford Green Rotary.

Mars confectionery wanted to make Easter special and chose Rotary to partner with them.

Next stop was to the Hope Church in Lytham, where volunteers continue to provide household items for families in need across the Fylde through the Forget-Me-Notts programme.

Pastor John Filmer said: ”Our volunteers work tirelessly to help these vulnerable families and so it’s wonderful to be on the receiving end of thanks and gifts.”

President Brenda continued to push the boat out with a visit to Lytham St Annes Lifeboat Station to meet chairman of fund raising Digby Moulden and members of the crew.

Station Coxswain Tom Stuart said: “What better than to receive eggs at Easter.”

A visit to Clifton Hospital to meet hospital manager Linda Broadbent and her operational managers rounded off the treat deliveries.
