An EGG-CITING opportunity to win a giant Easter egg is up for grabs as part of a fundraiser for a local sight loss charity.

The Beacon Centre for the Blind is raffling off the supersized creation, which stands at one metre tall, to raise funds to support its work and help ensure that no one has to face sight loss alone.

Supporter Engagement Manager Sophie Higgins said: “Our Easter Raffle is a firm favourite with our supporters here at Beacon as it’s perfect for the chocoholics amongst us! We’re so egg-cited it’s back again this year and hope as many people as possible can enter and help us raise funds to support people with sight loss when they need us the most.”

It costs just £1 per ticket to enter and tickets are available in Beacon’s seven shops across the Black Country and Staffordshire and also online here.
