An Easter bonnet parade and some highly original ways of tracking down hidden eggs all helped raise funds to aid the homeless on Easter Sunday.

The event was held at Datchet Village Hall in Allen Way for children aged up to 10.

They brought their own Easter bonnets and searched for the hidden chocolate eggs by rummaging in a ball pond, sorting through straw, flipping over flower pots and even retrieving 'gold' coins from a mysterious thing called a slimey gelibaff.

There was also a chance to find some 'famous' bunnies and put a name to them.

There were prizes for the best bonnets which the children brought along themselves before doing their best to impress the judges.

The Easter event was organised by Katie Moseley and supported with donations from local businesses, including all of the Easter eggs for the event from Tesco Express, Datchet.

Volunteers from the local community also helped.  

The event was held in aid of the Datchet homeless night shelter at St Mary’s Church, Datchet.  

The London and Slough Run is the charity behind all of the good work and has been running for five years.

 The proceeds for the event will go a long way towards supporting the next night shelter next winter.
