Easter cheer in Ottery

Children of Freedom Park waiting in line for their Easter goodies.

Excitement filled the air in front of the Ottery home of Tina and Keith Blake as they handed out boxes of apples, Easter eggs and hot cross buns to the children of Freedom Park informal settlement on Easter Sunday, April 9.

The 3 000 apples were donated by Morne and Alicia Holtzhausen from a farm in Philippi, and the Easter eggs and hot cross buns were donated by numerous biker clubs.

Mr Blake, an Ottery community worker, added: “It was the Ottery Boyz MCC’s 10th Pickled Fish Run, on Good Friday, which they handed out to Lotus River, Ottery, Lansdowne and Parkwood.” The rest of the goodies were handed out to the Freedom Park community.
