Egg-cellent result! Robert scoops his prize while the Argus Appeal gets a donation
Apparently, anything is good if it’s made of chocolate. Well, that’s what comedienne Jo Brand once said, walking, breathing proof – if ever you needed it – that there can be no negative effects from enthusiastic consumption. Uhhm, hang on….
So we reckon Brighton resident Robert Brooks (pictured) will have a lot of goodness in his front room at the moment. You see Robert won the raffle for our giant Easter egg and he picked it up today.
Whooooah, before you slam your laptop shut in indignant jealousy, Robert’s not going to scoff the 10kg monster himself. He’s going to hold a party for his son and dozens of the toddler’s young friends in Queen’s Park. Many of those who bought tickets said they would put the egg to a charitable use – and we’re really glad it will put lots of little smiles on little faces.
It also made £112 for the Argus Appeal, which supports good causes across Sussex – so, all in all, that big oval ball of calories has brought a fair amount of joy to those around us.
Thanks to Holly from Chocoholly, who made the egg (you can see that amazing process here in our YouTube film). Thanks also to everyone who took part in the raffle – and commiserations. Commiserations, that is, to everyone except Robert. But Robert deserves a bit of luck because he’s obviously a good egg.
