THIS year’s Wirral Egg Run raised more than £22,000.
The money has been divided between 11 charities and good causes.
Among the recipients this year were Wirral Narrowboat Trust, Claire House and Foxfield School in Moreton, which will receive £1,695 to buy sensory equipment.
The money will be handed over at a cheque presentation day at The Tap, Eastham on Sunday, starting at 1pm.
The amount raised so far is £10,000 less than 2011’s final total – but organisers said there is still time to donate.
Philip Whittam of the Wirral Egg Run charity, said: “Last year a lot more money was put into the collection buckets, which really added up.
“But the main thing is to give some Easter eggs to kids in hospital and at the same time raise cash for good causes, and that’s what we’ve done.
“We’re still taking donations and we’re trying to organise little events throughout the year to raise as much money as we can.”
Charities and individuals were able to apply for grants from the money raised through the Wirral Egg Run.
Mayor of Wirral Gerry Ellis will present cheques to the successful applicants on behalf of the Wirral Egg Run charity.
There will be live music from Audiobloom, The Clan and BadWolf as well as a barbecue and raffle with prizes donated by local businesses.
The Egg Run team are now organising this year’s Wirral Toy Run, which will see bikers riding through the borough on Sunday, December 2 to deliver Christmas presents to children in hospital.
Next year’s Egg Run is due to take place on Sunday, March 17.
