A Maryport opticians has collected more than 120 Easter eggs for charity.

Andrea McEwan, optical advisor at Kirkbride Eye Care, organised the collection to support The Freedom Project, which helps the victims of domestic violence in West Cumbria.

Customers were asked to contribute Easter eggs of money to buy Easter eggs.

Andrea said staff were "overwhelmed" by the generosity of our customers, the community and from local businesses in Maryport.

"The Freedom Project has been completely blown away and have already handed some of the eggs out to the children," she said.
