They have kindly handed over their clutch to the Doncaster Children’s Services Trust, which will distribute the eggs around their six children’s homes.

Angela Reader, of J Steadman said, “The generosity of our customers and members of the local community in Balby and around our Bentley office is just amazing. We would like to thank everyone who has supported the appeal.”

The Trust’s Senior Head of Service for looked after children, Julie Mepham said, “We would like to thank J Steadman and Sons and their customers for their thoughtful gifts. It is wonderful that they think of children who cannot be with their birth families at this time of year.”
