Giant Easter egg being raffled for charity
Published 17/04/14



A GIANT Easter egg is being raffled in memory of a mother-of-two.

The 8kg chocolate egg was made at the Chocolate Café in Thames Side, Henley, and will be raffled on Easter Sunday.

The café holds the charity raffle every year and customers pay £1 per ticket.

This year, the proceeds will go towards research into aneurysms in memory of Claire Peacock, who died after suffering a subarachnoid haemorrhage in March.

Ms Peacock, 37, who was a social worker with Buckinghamshire County Council and lived in Grange Road, Henley, with her children, Freya, 17, and Finley, 14.

Vivienne Connery, co-owner of the café, said: “I was very touched by Claire’s death. At the funeral, listening to her children talk about their mum with such courage and strength inspired me to raise the money in her memory.”

Claire’s partner, Gary Boys, of River Terrace, Henley, said: “Claire and I used to come to the café on a regular basis. I want to thank Vivienne and the staff for putting together this kind gesture.”
