D2 Rail supports the Mustard Tree’s Easter Campaign ‘The Easter Egg Shop ‘n’ Drop!’

After the great success of the ‘Fill a Crate for Christmas’ campaign, the Mustard Tree decided to continue to spread some joy during the Easter season. After discovering that many families relied on the Mustard Tree community shop as a crucial destination for low-cost, affordable items over the Christmas period, the team are expecting to see the same demand on the approach to Easter. To make sure they can provide for their community shop, the Mustard Tree have launched the Easter Egg Shop ‘n’ Drop campaign.

The appeal is to help the team to fill their Community Shops with Easter Eggs throughout the month of March. The campaign is a great way to spread some joy for the Mustard Tree community, and to show our support D2 Rail have donated a variety of Easter Eggs to the cause.

In additional to the egg donations our Directors Dave and Simon have donated £500 to The Mustard Tree on behalf of D2 Rail. This is a huge help to the Mustard Tree team and can fund some of the very important areas listed below.

  • £150 Keeps a van running to pick up donations and deliver furniture for one week

  • £100 Allows us to equip a single persons home with furniture

  • £50 Allows us to donate a fridge to someone in need

  • £20 Pays for a month’s credit for somebody rough sleeping to access food and clothing

  • £12 Covers the cost of the items for one of our Food Club parcels

Last year has proven to be an extremely hard on the Mustard Tree, and so any acts of kindness like these not only help the homeless community, but also the people who have worked throughout the pandemic to help tackle poverty and homelessness in Manchester.

If you would like to help support the Mustard Tree and all the great work they do throughout the homeless community please go to the Mustard Tree donation link here Mustard Tree | Donate money.
