AN Easter egg raffle raised £305 for Camp Mohawk, a multi-functional day centre for special needs children near Wargrave.

Roy Hastings, master chocolatier and co-owner of the Chocolate Theatre Café in Thames Side, Henley, created the 8kg egg which was won by three-year-old Harry Scozzari and his brother Samuel, seven, of Valley Road, Henley.

Their father, Silvio, bought two raffle tickets on a whim on Easter Sunday, the day of the draw. Henley Mayor Elizabeth Hodgkin picked the winning ticket.

Vivienne Connery, co-owner of the café, said: ?We like to support the community. In the autumn I helped the Three Tuns run a comedy night in aid of Camp Mohawk and I was so impressed with the charity and the way it helps local kids.?

Mark Parkinson, a member of the Friends of Camp Mohawk, said: ?We are very grateful for the support.?
