Primula Cheese spread a little Easter joy this week as it donated a whole host of delicious Easter Eggs to St Bede’s Palliative Care Unit in Gateshead in a bid to assist its fundraising efforts.

Employees at the company’s Team Valley factory and office were asked to donate a chocolate treat and more than 50 Easter eggs were collected. Representatives from Primula’s Charity Committee were on hand to deliver these ahead of the weekend.

At St Bede’s Palliative Care Unit, patients are cared for at various stages of their illness and are provided with symptom management, respite care and end-of-life care.

James Annan, Co-Chair of Primulas Charity Committee, said: “Giving back to our region is very important to each and every one of us at Primula; we’re in a really privileged position to be able to help people in the community, whether that’s through a larger donation or a smaller gift.

“The team at St Bede’s Palliative Care Unit carries out such invaluable work and we’re really pleased to be able to assist its fundraising this Easter.”

Primula is part of the Kavli Group which is owned by the Kavli Trust, a charitable organisation based in Norway which supports humanitarian work, research and culture in the UK and around the world. Each year, Primula supports a number of charities and local good causes in and around the North East.
