Eggcellent effort from Sultan Sailors

29 March 2016
Sailors from HMS Sultan recently took part in an Easter Egg Bonanza in order to bring some Easter cheer to particularly deserving children at Frimley Park Hospital, Surrey.

Teams of personnel from across the engineering Establishment, in Gosport, Hampshire, ran around the site finding special tags so that they could solve riddles using hidden clues.

In addition to this each team had to nominate and then face paint a team member as an Easter Bunny.

All of the participants had donated an Easter Egg each in order to take part and it was decided to offer these as a donation to help children at Frimley Park Hospital after Leading Physical Trainer Alex Stocker had nominated them as his local hospital. 

I have never forgotten the support received, and ever since I’ve been really keen to recognise and support them.

After taking the donated eggs into the Hospital, with colleagues, Alex said: “Several years ago, my son was born prematurely.

“He was in an incubator at the Hospital for 3 months and throughout that time the Staff were so good in everything that they did.

“I have never forgotten the support received, and ever since I’ve been really keen to recognise and support them.”

“The Easter Egg Bonanza was a really good afternoon, which brought everyone together.

“I was really pleased that everyone within the Establishment was so generous and got behind giving some cheer to the children.”
