Cala egg hunt trail raises funds for Cults school one last time

Children in Cults had the chance to participate in a much-loved Easter egg hunt for one last time as Cala Homes (North) prepares to complete its popular Friarsfield West development after a decade building homes in the area.

This year marked the eighth Easter egg hunt, with hundreds of Cults Primary School pupils taking part and more than £3,000 being raised for the school, including £200 from this year’s activity.

Cala Homes has been partnering with several local businesses on North Deeside Road to host the yearly tradition, with local pupils invited to find 10 numbered eggs in the windows of the participating businesses to win an Easter egg. For every completed entry, Cala Homes also donated £5 to the school.

Emma Gelati, marketing manager at Cala Homes (North), said: “This year’s Easter egg hunt has been very bittersweet. Whilst we are delighted we were able to bring back the egg hunt for another year, we’re obviously saddened that it was the final year.

“It’s been a great way for parents to spend time with their kids during the school holidays, as well as highlighting some of the wonderful businesses and shops in Cults. And of course, we’ve been proud to provide funding to Cults Primary School.”

Lorna Dalziel, acting head teacher at Cults Primary School, said: “We are very grateful for the kind monetary donations we have received from Cala Homes each year. We’ve been able to use the money to purchase a variety of additional classroom items that have helped the pupils over the years and our pupils have loved taking part in the egg hunt during the holidays.”

Friarsfield West is the last phase of Cala’s Cults masterplan.
