HADDO CHARITY EGG HUNT 2019 – EASTER DAY

Charity Haddo Egg Hunt

Once a year, on Easter Sunday, an Aberdeenshire Council park hosts a very special egg hunt. Organised by local Rotary Clubs at Haddo Country Park, Methlick, an Easter bunny leaves beautifully painted wooden eggs for children to find.

Haddo Visitor Services Officer, Suzanna Atkinson, said: “It is an incredibly busy day at Haddo, so we have to close the estate to all vehicles except those who have pre-purchased parking passes for the hunt, these can be bought by searching for Haddo Egg Hunt online at brownpapertickets.com or visiting our Facebook page @visithaddo.”

As well as the charming eggs to find, there will be a face-painter, crafts, an egg-rolling competition and tasty treats to buy. Income from all activities and stalls goes to charity, so it’s a very fitting way to spend Easter with the family.

Suzanna said: “So many community groups get involved in this event. We plan it for a year to make sure it’s a wonderful day out for families. It’s a real credit to the volunteers that we manage to put on something so fun, but yet so rewarding for all involved.”

All profits from this year’s event will be going to the Neonatal Unit at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.
