AN EASTER tradition is unfolding in Rosalind Park with chocolate eggs being hidden for people to find on Good Friday.

The Vision Australia Easter Egg Hunt has been a mainstay in Bendigo for 15 years and is one of the charity’s largest fundraisers in the region.

More than 130,000 eggs will be available for hunters to find, including 50,000 that have been donated anonymously.

Chief executive of Vision Australia Ron Hooton said the generous donation meant there will be plenty of eggs to be found on Good Friday.

“Behind Carols by Candlelight, the Bendigo Easter Egg Hunt is one of Vision Australia’s biggest fundraising events each year and we’re extremely grateful for the enthusiasm the Bendigo community has for the event,” Mr Hooton said.

All proceeds from ticket sales to the Easter egg hunt will go to supporting the work of Vision Australia.

“The Easter Egg Hunt has been a Bendigo tradition for more than 15 years and in that time has raised a significant amount of funds,” Mr Hooton said.

“That has been vital to the work we do at Vision Australia that supports people who are blind or have low vision to be active and independent members of the community and live the life they choose.”

Last year the Easter egg hunt raised more than $43,000, all of which went to clients in the Greater Bendigo region.
