Last year you donated more than 2,ooo chocolate treats, which were distributed to children struggling to overcome long-term illness, disability and problems such as poverty and abuse.

This year we hope you will help us to support even more children.

The Easter Bunny went along to Tesco in The Bridges to help launch this year’s appeal.
