City Cruises and York’s Chocolate Story are teaming up this Easter to bring an Easter egg hunt to York. The two companies have collaborated to create an egg hunt that will see 16 eggs hidden around the city over a two-week period from 1 April to 16 April. One egg will be hidden at 10am each day and will contain some Easter treats.
Participants can expect daily prizes, two Fish & Chips Cruise tickets from City Cruises celebrating their new collaboration with Mr Chippy, and a family ticket for York’s Chocolate Story, with the main prize being donated by a local business. Prizes range from Strictly Come Dancing tickets to £100 vouchers, so treasure hunters will have plenty to look forward to.
As part of their support for the event, YO1 Radio will provide daily hints and clues about the locations of the hidden eggs. Dale Bartleson, Commercial Director of YO1 Radio said, “Here at YO1 Radio, we are incredibly egg-cited to be part of the Easter Egg-stravaganza! We can’t wait to see families and friends come together for this new and free event. As a community focused radio station, we’ll be promoting the hunt on-air and on our social media platforms to ensure everyone knows about this exciting opportunity! Join us for an unforgettable Easter adventure.”
Additionally, pictures of the egg locations will be posted on York’s Chocolate Story’s social media platforms. Participants are invited to use the hashtag #EggHuntYork when sharing their discoveries on social media.
City Cruises’ Events Coordinator, Chloe Shefford, expressed her excitement about the upcoming Easter egg hunt, saying that she is thrilled to be able to bring a free event to locals with such a well-loved attraction like York’s Chocolate Story. She went on to mention that as an advocate for supporting local, she believes that this event is a perfect example of what can be achieved when local businesses come together to create something special for the community.
General Manager of York’s Chocolate Story, Stuart Wood added, “What better way to celebrate the history and heritage of chocolate in York than searching our great city at Easter for a chocolate egg and winning prices including tickets to one of York’s ‘must see’ attractions. We are extremely grateful to all the businesses involved and making this event reality, we look forward to welcoming you at York’s Chocolate Story and Happy Easter to all.”
