Laddsworth Primary School collected a record of 5953 Easter Eggs for Siyabonga over the last couple of weeks. Education Managers, Mrs Kanzler and Mrs Ballantine from Siyabonga, collected the eggs at Assembly on Monday 15 April 2019. Laddsworth pupils have been part of the Easter Eggs collection project for the last nine years. Laddsworth has had an overwhelming response and this is by far the most collected. It is wonderful to know that we will be making a small difference to the lives of many young children. Siyabonga will hand out these Easter eggs to under-privileged children in the communities, which they support.
