Chelmsford_Ladies_Circle_Easter_Bunny_Hunt_2018_found_a_bunnyA big thank you to everyone who came to the 2019 Easter Sunday Bunny Hunt!

For our 16th year, Chelmsford Ladies Circle annual charity Easter Bunny Hunt, returned to Hylands House, Chelmsford.

Tickets were sold out a week before the event, where 400 children enjoyed a great Easter day out for the family in a lovely venue, hunting the Pleasure Gardens for our wooden bunnies and winning a chocolatey prize.

We are thrilled to say that the event raised 1,868 for our charity of the year, Dementia Adventure


A big thank you to our bunny sponsors!
