Jersey Women’s Refuge have taken delivery of a giant Easter egg thanks to a generous donation from RBC Wealth Management. Weighing 20kg, the egg was created at Jersey’s La Mare Wine Estate by Chocolatier Darren Stower and accepted by Lorna Kearney on behalf of the Refuge.

RBC Wealth Management’s Donations Committee are providing the enormous egg after a staff member had seen the novel creations in Maison La Mare’s shop window in King Street. The company thought it would be a nice surprise and gift for the families at the Refuge.

Lorna Kearney, Manager at the Women's Refuge said 'We are thrilled to bits with the egg and would like to pass on our thanks to everyone at RBC Wealth Management. We are very busy at the Refuge so there are plenty of women and children with us who are going to thoroughly enjoy it. It is generous gestures such as these which let women know that others care and are thinking about them. It has given them a lift whilst going through a difficult time in their life.'
