A PUB in Bristol is urging the community to get behind its annual Easter egg appeal and bring smiles to the faces of children living in care.

The Ship Inn, in Alveston, has run its Easter Egg Appeal for the past nine-years and collected more than 200 chocolate eggs in 2012.
Landlady Donna Telford says she hopes the community will get behind the initiative this year to make it their biggest collection to date.
The 15th century Tudor Coaching Inn will then present Bristol Children's Services the eggs for underprivileged youngsters' this Easter.
Donna, 47, who has run the pub for the past nine years, said: "I have run pubs for 24-years and have always organised worthy causes raising thousands of pounds, as I feel it's important to support the local community.
"The highlight in our fundraising calendar for me is our toy and Easter egg appeals, which help children across Bristol.
"I feel like I am attached to these children having run similar appeals in the past and I would feel devastated if I let the children down.
"Hopefully though people will be generous this year and donate more eggs than ever before."
Eggs can be handed to the pub between now and March 25 ready for distribution over the Easter period.
