Easter bunny handing out gifts ahead of charity walk on Saturday


Fund raiser aims to spread Easter joy, promote reducing the spread of the virus and raise money for local families

The Easter bunny is set to make an early arrival in Banbury today.   He will spread some Easter joy and at the same time remind us that we need to stay safe as lockdown is slowly lifted.

Then this weekend the bunny will be setting off on a charity walk to raise money for 8 struggling families.

The project is the latest endeavour by Prabhu Natarajan from Bretch Hill.   Mr Natarajan will be outside his house this morning between 6 and 9am, and then again this afternoon between 2 and 5pm, as he does his bit to help people stop the further spread of the virus by handing out face masks, hand sanitizer and chocolate, whilst dressed as the Easter bunny.

The chocolate and eggs were donated by Banbury Cross Convenience Store, M&N Windows and Doors and Cyberhomes.   Mr Natarajan has 1,500 facemasks, 500 hand sanitizers and 2,400 Easter chocolates to hand out from outside his home at 453 Bretch Hill.

On Saturday, Mr Natarajan, again dressed as the Easter bunny, will set off on his charity walk handing out items as he goes.  By completing the challenge he is hoping people will donate via a Just Giving page as he seeks to raise £4,500 to help improve the lives of eight local families.    

If you would like to help Mr Natarajan achieve his fund raising target you can make a donation here.
