GRAHAM, National Highways and Thorpe Primary School teamed up on March 28 to donate more than 600 Easter eggs to a children's charity. 

Creating a place of friendship and safety, Little Miracles offers advice and support to families with children with additional needs, disabilities, and life-limiting conditions in the UK. 

In a bid to support the charity, staff at GRAHAM have been collecting sweet treats, chocolate bars, and activity packs. 

Civil engineering experts working on behalf of National Highways, GRAHAM is an active supporter of Little Miracles and has organised a number of donation drives for the charity over Easter and Christmas. 

Louise Evans, head of income generation at Little Miracles said: “Once again, we are so grateful to the teams at GRAHAM and National Highways for their incredible support.

"Over the Easter holidays we expect to see around 3,000 people and will have around 300 people at our Easter Egg Hunt in Peterborough alone!

"Little Miracles is funded almost entirely by voluntary donations. Without the help of organisations like GRAHAM and National Highways we simply wouldn’t be able to help the thousands of families who turn to us every year.

She added: "Having a child with a disability or life-limiting condition can be an extremely lonely, scary journey. We exist to ensure that no one has to go through their journey alone."

Between April 2022 and March 2023 Little Miracles teams helped 42,439 people who came to play and get support as well as hundreds of families who accessed the charity’s foodbank.

Meanwhile, the Family Support Team undertook 9,660 cases, including 4,985 to offer emotional and health-related support.

Lynsey Harris, social value and community engagement lead at GRAHAM said: “I am delighted with the response to the Little Miracles Easter egg and Easter-themed goodies donations.

“Last year, GRAHAM along with National Highways and our supply chain collected donations for the centre. This year, we have had such a great response with even more collaboration, more eggs, and some fabulous Easter-themed activities to ensure all the children are included.”
