This gigantic Easter egg is being raffled off to help raise money for the EllenorLions Hospices.

The delicious Belgian chocolate treat, which stands at a proud 2.5ft and weighs a hearty 4.5kg, is being donated by Gravesend newsagent Bob Ogles, who owns Thames News.

Mr Ogles is hoping to raise £200 for the charity by raffling off the £98 egg, which is on display in the shop window within Thamesgate Shopping Centre.

Mr Ogles said: “It is the mother of all eggs. I think it would take a family of four a whole week to get through it. I am a firm believer that charity begins at home. I would really like to raise lots of money for the EllenorLions Hospices which I hear has been suffering as a result of the credit crunch.”

The prize draw will take place at the store on Thursday, April 9.

Raffle tickets are £1 a strip or 20p each, available from Thames News.
