The Real Easter Egg and MU with £3 off is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year but did you know that Mothers' Union members in this diocese played a big part in its success? Back in 2010 the supermarkets turned down the idea of the UK’s first religious egg with the story of Easter in the box so The Meaningful Chocolate Company asked Mothers' Union members and their churches to crowd fund the idea by placing orders. David Marshall, from The Meaningful Chocolate Company, says; "I had never been to CRE it was a real eye opener. Hundreds of stalls offering resources, thousands of church members looking for ideas and inspiration. CRE was the ideal place to bring the Real Easter Egg. People wanted to taste the chocolate, hold the boxes and meet us, something you can't do online!" Ten years on more than a million Real Easter eggs have been sold, most sent through the post, and more than £275,000 donated to charitable projects. For Easter 2020, there are five types of Real Easter Eggs available all with new content. Each egg has an edition of the Easter story included. To help celebrate a special Mothers' Union discount code has been made available. If you buy 2 or more cases (12 eggs) of original eggs and enter the code MU2010 you will get £3 off your order total.
