The Easter Bunny made an early appearance at Alder Carr Farm in Needham Market last Saturday as part of a drive to raise money to install smoke alarms in vulnerable residents’ homes.

The bunny, also known as five-year-old Rianna Chittock, helped Stowmarket Gipping Valley Rotary Club with publicity for their annual raffle of giant Easter eggs.

All money raised will go to support the club’s plans, in conjunction with Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service, to install smoke alarms for people who are at risk of fire such as elderly or disabled residents.

Club member Peter Watson said: “The Fire and Rescue service is hugely committed to this project, and we Rotarians are helping to ensure that the funding is available for sufficient smoke alarms to be placed in the homes of those who are at higher risk than the average.”
