Join an Easter Egg Hunt
The Lindt Gold Bunny heads to Kensington Garden’s this Easter for a mega Easter Egg Hunt in the grounds. 6th-22nd April
Keep an eye out on the King’s Road for Maitre Choux’s Easter Eclair Hunt. Not quite an egg, but a French pastry chef’s take on it. Mini versions of the cream-and-pastry treats are being hidden all around the King's Road and those lucky enough to find them can redeem them for a dark chocolate eclair at the Maitre Choux shop. 19th-22nd April
Volunteer at a Soup Kitchen
Head to the Streets of London website to check out which homelessness agencies require help and give back to your community. These agencies rely on support from volunteers so could not run without them, so lend your support if you can!
