Studio, one of East Lancashire's largest employers, has donated 1,000 Easter eggs to charities, community projects and primary schools to celebrate its three year Family Stand sponsorship at Accrington Stanley FC, which it recently re-signed.

The eggs were delivered to doctors, nurses and staff at NHS ELHT Hospital Charity, Maundy Relief in Accrington, the Arc Project in Blackburn, and Young Carers. Winstanley, the Accrington Stanley Community Trust mascot, also made a special trip to St Mary's Primary School in Oswaldtwistle, and eggs also went to St Andrew's Primary School in Oswaldtwistle.

Well done Studio, and Happy Easter everyone!"

Paul Kendrick, CEO of Studio said: "We're delighted to re-sign the sponsorship deal at Accrington Stanley, and stay part of their journey. We're glad to help the community and give something back with our donation of Easter eggs, and I hope everyone enjoys them!"
