Groups represented included the Bury St Edmunds A14 scooter club, Breckland Buccaneers and the Titans MCC. As well as the Easter eggs, they also delivered 20 teddies knitted by Lindsay Judd, from Barton Mills.

They have held an egg run and a Christmas toy run for about 14 years.

Organiser Barbara Craig said: “Everyone was chuffed (with the eggs) and we always get a good reception.”

Her sister Sheila works for Transeast, in Kenya, which donated about £50 towards Easter eggs.
