RedRoad FM gave Easter eggs to the youngsters Rotherham Hospital after appealing to listeners of the community radio station.

Ashley Saywell and Barry Bull, presenters of Thursday nights Fab n Groovy 60s show launched an appeal for donations of Easter eggs.

Ashley, who donated the eggs dressed as a Thunderbird said the response was brilliant.

Along with Barry, who dressed as a Power Ranger, the pair delivered the Easter eggs to the children’s ward earlier this month and spent time with children, parents and hospital staff.

Barry said: “A big thank you must go to our listeners.”

The pair added: “We are community based and therefore try to add to the local community spirit wherever and whenever we can. It is hard work but extremely worthwhile.”
