When a cheeky care home chicken devoured the Easter egg hunt chocolate, she felt so bad she vowed to make amends.
Greenhithe's Haslington Lodge Care Home's resident hen has devised a plan to gather some 500 chocolate eggs to dish out to local emergency services and the homeless in repentance.
She is now appealing to the community for help to bring a little joy this Easter.
Sally Ann Briggs, manager at Haslington Lodge Care Home, said: “With Easter just round the corner we thought we’d do something to bring a little joy to our community by saying thank you to the men and women who make up our emergency services and those in the community who find themselves in a less fortunate position.
"It would really make our day if we could make this happen. If the community got behind us we know we could."
