Every year, thousands of little woolly chicks and bunnies flock into Francis House, knitted by crafty supporters from across the world.
The chicks are filled with a donated chocolate egg each and sold in schools, stores and businesses all across Greater Manchester to raise funds for the hospice.
The hospice needs over £33m a year to keep doors open, and is heavily dependant on donations to reach that target.
Louise Partland, PA to Senior Partner, Vijay Srivastava, has been knitting Easter Bunnies, Chicks and Bees for charity. The proceeds will go to the Francis House ‘Chick Knit’ Appeal, where Vijay is a trustee of the charity.
In 2019 we raised £207.00, and we have not been able to raise any money in the last two years due to Covid.
So this year we want to be bigger! If you would like to place an order, get in touch with Louise at email@example.com
