Charity We Love: Francis House Easter Chick Appeal
- Let’s Knit
Francis House Children’s Hospice in Manchester is calling for knitters to get involved in its 2016 Easter Chick Appeal and knit for a very worthy cause.
For the last 15 years the hospice has raised in vital funds with the help of loyal knitters from across the country, who send in thousands of woolly chicks to be filled with chocolate eggs and sold in local schools and businesses for £1.
Easter 2015 was a record-breaking year for the hospice, with over 8,250 chicks and a total of £11,133 raised. They are hoping to do better still in 2016. This time round, they are putting a creative spin on the appeal, inviting knitters to go ‘crazy with colour’ and send in unique chicks that are bursting with character! But please be mindful to follow the pattern and knit the right size as the chicks must be able to hold a crème egg without it falling out.
