Stuart Frost opened Casa 17 in Westgate last year. Last Easter he cooked 1,000 meals for the elderly and vulnerable with help from the local freemasons.

Stuart said: “We felt the future generations needed a little pick me up as well. So we have given away 100 Easter eggs along with the help of the under 15s Sleaford Town football team, which I sponsor.”

They did it in the Market Place over the Easter weekend.

“We also sold raffle tickets for a £70 Thornton’s chocolate hamper and raised £180 for the team, which is much-needed,” said Stuart.

Mayor Coun Anthony Brand came along to help present the eggs.

Stuart said: “It’s great for grass roots football and the local community. It was also the first game for the under 15s since lockdown, away.

coun Brand said: ““Stuart exemplifies The Spirit of Sleaford in the supportive work he has done during the lockdowns. He and many others, in their own ways, have contributed to the wellbeing of others across our wider community.”
