Easter Chick Appeal

Front CoverOur annual Easter Chick Appeal went egg-ceptionally well in 2016 with knitted chicks flocking in by the thousands.

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

A phenomenal £27,492 was raised!

If you’d like to get involved this Easter you can find the pattern here Chick knitting pattern instructions 2017

New for 2017 we’ve now got a crochet version of the pattern here Chick crochet pattern 2017

Chicks can be delivered to the Fundraising Office anytime before March 13th 2017.
