A ROMSEY-based firm has donated 7,000 creme eggs to NHS hospitals.

Software house, Aspin, gifted several nearby NHS hospitals with thousands of Cadbury's Crème Eggs.

Having initially bought them for their customers as an Easter gift, they felt that everyone would agree the NHS would be the ideal recipient during this very difficult period.

They were greatly received by Lymington, Southampton, Salisbury and Winchester hospitals.

Managing Director of Aspin, Nathan Aspin, said: "This year we felt there were another organisation of workers that truly deserved our thanks.

"Our NHS and most importantly, our local trusts; Lymington, Southampton, Winchester and Salisbury.

"We want to thank everyone on the NHS front line, those who selflessly continue their day-to-day duties outside the home in support of us all.

"NHS Lymington, Southampton, Winchester, and Salisbury, we hope you enjoy these Easter eggs.”

Nathan distributed the eggs to each of the trusts this month, and was met with great thanks by each of the NHS representatives that received him.

Aspin provide trade eCommerce and rep ordering systems to greeting card publishers, giftware distributors and garden centre suppliers.
