Sweet Easter homecoming for Army Battalion


A whole battalion of the British Army will receive a sweet welcome home this Easter.

Every member of 1st Bn Royal Anglian Regiment, based in Bulford, Wiltshire, will be given a Real Easter Egg.

The giveaway is the brainchild of army chaplain Revd Martin Groves with support from Circle Express and The Meaningful Chocolate Company.

Revd Groves said: "I can think of no better welcome than an Easter egg which has the Bible story on the box and its message of hope and new life. These men, women and their families have sacrificed a great deal to serve their country. They know what it means to be in a hard place and it is right that we should say thanks to them in a fun but meaningful way.”

David Marshall, from the Meaningful Chocolate Company, said: “We are delighted to help by making a special batch of our Real Easter Eggs for the troops. Like our other eggs there is an activity pack in the box, it’s made from Fairtrade chocolate and we will make a charitable donation for each egg given.”

Chris Coffey, from Circle Express, said: “We are proud to sponsor the eggs and support our troops. The chaplain asked if we could deliver them in one go and as we specialise in overnight deliveries, we agreed immediately.”
