Schools Campaign revealed

JPL_5157Bishops ask church schools to order

Church leaders from across the UK are asking church schools to put in their order for The Real Easter Egg before 1 December 2010.

For schools that do there will be educational resources available in January 2011 with The Real Easter Eggs being delivered early in 2011. It is hoped that staff will use the arrival of the eggs to teach about citizenship, the meaning of Easter, the role of Fairtrade and the place of charitable giving. The supply of eggs can then be given as rewards for students who have worked particularly hard in exploring these themes.

Welcomed

The Rt Revd, Nigel McCulloch, Bishop of Manchester, said; “The Real Easter Egg gives church schools their first ever chance to buy an Easter Egg that not only tastes good but does good. I believe there will be widespread support for the product from the faith community with many others likely to be interested. We hope that all our supermarkets will stock the first and only Easter egg in the UK that explains the significance of Easter and, though the charitable donation, brings to light the Easter themes of hope and new life.”

David Marshall, from the team behind The Real Easter Egg, said; “This is the first time church schools have had a chance to lead the way and demonstrate their faith in this unique way. The Real Easter Egg could make a big difference to the lives of many people here and aboard.”

The Archbishop of York has also publicly welcomed the Real Easter Egg.
