Schoolgirl invites Worksop to meet the Easter Bunny as she raises money for Weston Park Hospital
Eleven-year-old Libby Peacock, of 53 Furnival Street, Worksop, is hosting an Easter event with the famous Easter Bunny in her own garden for the whole family.
The event will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday April 16 and will cost £3 per child.
Families will have the chance to take a picture with the Easter Bunny, treat themselves to a chocolate Easter egg and pet real chicks and two gorgeous bunnies – Peter who is just a few weeks old and Fendi who is four months old .

Libby will also be selling homemade bath bombs and running raffles and raffles with all proceeds from the event going to Sheffield’s Weston Park Hospital, which specializes in the treatment of cancer.
Libby said: ‘It doesn’t matter how much we raise because it will all go to Weston Park and help the machines and medicine at the hospital.
“It’s a fun opportunity for families to do something over Easter weekend, you don’t need to book, you can just come.
“We have a lot of messages from people, and we all have costumes like sparkly tutus that we wear on the stalls.”
The event marks the first charity event of the year for Libby, but is far from the first she has hosted as she raised funds for cancer research in memory of her nan, Susan Mullen, who sadly passed away at Bassetlaw Hospice in December 2020. .
For 2022, Libby will be raising money for Weston Park Hospital where Susan spent a lot of time receiving treatment for pancreatic cancer.
Libby’s tireless fundraising events, raffles and thousands of pounds raised also earned her a Bassetlaw Achievers Award on March 16 after being nominated for the award by an adviser who had read the story of Libby in the Guardian.
Libby received a certificate and photograph with Bassetlaw District Council President, Councilor Jack Bowker, which is framed on her wall.
Katie Peacock, Libby’s mother, said: “People at the event had read Libby’s story and came up to the table crying, it was really touching.
“It’s just nice to keep seeing my mom’s name everywhere and in different places, it was a really good event.
