Crossgates Shopping Centre marks start of a Cracking Easter Holiday

Crossgate Easter Egg Hunt

11th April 2017

Families from across East Leeds enjoyed a cracking start to Easter at Crossgates Shopping Centre, thanks to an array of free activities and an exciting golden Easter egg hunt.

The Easter bunny made a special appearance, spreading smiles by handing out mini chocolate eggs to shoppers, while a free painter transformed children into Easter bunnies, chicks and many other colourful characters.

The Easter-themed festivities marked the start of Crossgates Shopping Centre’s golden Easter egg hunt. Each day throughout the Easter holidays (until Monday 17th April), the Easter bunny will hide a new golden egg in centre. The first shopper to find the golden egg and follow the instructions will be able to take home the egg and claim the day’s prize – a gift voucher worth £20*.

Throughout Easter Crossgates Shopping Centre will also be supporting South Leeds Foodbank in its work helping local families in need, by collecting donations of Easter Eggs, for children that may not otherwise receive them, canned food, toiletries, feminine hygiene products and other essentials.

Donations can be deposited at the centre’s designated donation station in the centre’s Management Office (Crossgates Shopping Centre, Crossgates, LS15 8ET; Monday – Friday 9am to 5pm) until Monday 17th April.

Centre Manager at Crossgates Shopping Centre, Matthew Middleton, commented: ”The appearance from the Easter Bunny this weekend certainly put a spring in shoppers’ steps.

“We love bringing the community together with our events and it great to see so many children enjoying the free face painting – there were plenty of bunnies, chicks and butterflies roaming the centre!

“Over the next week there will be lots of chances for shoppers to win prizes in our Easter egg hunt, by hunting each day for the elusive golden egg.

“There will also be the opportunity for people to give back, by donating Easter eggs, canned food and other essentials to South Leeds Foodbank, which does so much to support local people.”
