Harrogate children receive special Easter treat delivered by helicopter

North Stainley Primary School were visited by the Easter bunny in his helicopter to receive a special treat before half term.

Harrogate children receive special Easter treat delivered by helicopter Pupils from a Harrogate district primary school received a special visit from the Easter Bunny this morning (Monday). Thanks to Your Harrogate and Helijet Aviation, the Easter Bunny was able to fly to North Stainley Primary and deliver Easter eggs to the children and staff. The helicopter landed on the village field opposite the school just after 11:30am. The bunny, AKA ‘Rascal’ from Rascals Entertainment, danced and gave high fives to the children as he handed out chocolate eggs.

And after more than 1,000 entries, North Stainley Primary School was selected. Steph Thorpe, Director at Helijet Aviation, said:

“We love this competition. The kids bless them are so excited, the Easter Bunny is amazing - we just love doing this."
