Gina Gaunt and colleagues Ruth Wood, Nichola Turner, Natalie Poynton, Sara Gibby and Alexandra McCue set about asking their clients to donate Easter eggs for donation and said they were "absolutely blown away" by the generosity of their clients, including ALUK, Newport City Homes, Celtic Recycling, the Dragons of Newport, Dig It Landscapes, South West Training, John Liscombe's Ltd and Bisley, who so far have supplied more than 150 eggs.
Mrs Gaunt said: "We are delighted that there is such kindness amongst our Newport clients and can not thank them enough for their extreme generosity. Thank you, thank you, thank you for helping us to spread a little joy."
The team will distribute the eggs on Tuesday, April 15.
