An Ipswich fitness club is asking people to bring in their unwanted Easter eggs and swap them for a healthier alternative.
David Lloyd Ipswich is inviting visitors to resist temptation and bring their chocolate eggs into the club before April 11 to be entered into a prize draw.
Calling their efforts the Big David Lloyd Ipswich Easter Egg Amnesty, the club hopes to promote healthy habits and prevent families from crashing out at the end of the day for the wrong reasons.
Donated eggs donated will be offered to Ipswich support service and foodbank FIND.
General manager Paul Mathias said: “Many of us, especially children, are given far too many chocolate Easter eggs. It lies around the house, until it’s eaten even though we know excessive chocolate is bad for us and will leave us feeling sluggish.
