CAN you buy an egg-stra Easter gift to brighten the holiday for children and young people affected by domestic abuse? ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

That’s the question from a Flintshire politician who is appealing to members of the local community to consider buying an additional Easter egg this year and donating it to his collection for the Domestic Abuse Safety Unit (DASU) in Shotton. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Carl Sargeant, AM for Alyn and Deeside, is also asking constituents to consider donating toiletries to DASU – these are needed all-year-round. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“Domestic abuse affects all the family, and children and young people who are supported by DASU have often been through some very tough times,” said Carl Sargeant. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“Easter eggs are available quite cheaply in some shops so I hope constituents will consider buying one more and dropping it at my office for us to pass to DASU. There isn’t much time now before Easter but I know that anything people can do to support this appeal will be gratefully appreciated by DASU. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“I’m also collecting donations of toiletries which constituents can bring anytime and I will pass them on to DASU.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Donations can be taken to the Alyn and Deeside AM’s office at 70 High Street, Connah’s Quay, CH5 4DD. DASU will need to distribute the eggs to children and young people they support on Thursday, so the deadline is 3pm on Wednesday, April 12. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Toiletries can be dropped off Monday to Friday, 9.30am-4.30am. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Anyone who would like more information should ring 01244 823547. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
