BEVERLEY Building Society staff are egg-cited by their latest campaign to tie in with Dove House Hospice being adopted as the society’s Charity of the Year for 2023. The idea is to collect enough Easter Eggs to make sure that every child in Dove House’s child bereavement groups receives one.

Society marketing manager Debbie Connolly told us there were three ways people could join in and help: Donate an egg at the society’s Saturday Market office, make a cash donation over the counter which will be used to buy eggs or via their dedicated JustGiving page. “It might just be an Easter Eggs to somebody but it’s going to bring a little bit of joy and hopefully a smile on the face of the children,” she said.

Full details of how you can help can be viewed on the ‘Latest News” page of the website. And the full interview with Debbie and Jethro Shearring, senior fundraiser with Dove House, who were guests on Thursday’s Morning Mix can be heard via the “listen again” facility on our website,

During the year, Beverley Building Society hopes to raise a minimum £12,000 to help Dove House.
