Easter Chick Appeal

Chick us out!

Our annual Easter Chick Appeal is set to smash last year’s total with over 41,300 knitted chicks flocking into Francis House from across the UK and globe!

Over 700 hundred knitters put their needles to work to produce the cute and colourful chicks, all of which were filled with a crème egg and sold in local schools and businesses for £1.
