Farmer Toby Rush is hoping his hens will be extra good layers next month after securing a deal with Tesco to pledge 20p a box of six eggs to charity.
Money raised from the cycle ride in memory of the rugby players who perished in the DC-10 aircrash at Ermenonville 40 years ago will support Bury St Edmunds Rugby Club and St Nicholas Hospice Care.
Toby’s late father Nigel had a long involvement with the club which lost 18 members, half of whom were under 18s who played for Bury Colts which he coached.
Toby will also be joining The Memorial Cycle Ride from Ermenonville to Bury between May 7 and 11
His Rymer Farm Eggs with their catchy phrases on the egg boxes have been sold by Tesco for the past year. Some 26,000 free range hens supply the eggs on the 600 acre farm.
Toby said: “The memorial ride is going to be a fantastic event and I am delighted to be joining all the other riders involved. I was very keen to support such a brilliant well-deserved fund-raiser and to be involved on behalf of my father.”
