Knitters’ sterling effort with chicks

White 25-year anniversary knitted Easter chicks will be joining the regulars in our hen house this year.

It is the thirteenth year we have sold Crème Egg-stuffed chicks, which sell at £2 each to raise money for us as a local charity. The chicks also help to increase our profile across the areas we cover. 

This year some chicks are white and have a silver charm to mark our silver anniversary – although the numbers of them will be limited, so get one as soon as you can at one of our offices or sales outlets. Call us or see (web link here) for our up-to-date list of where you can buy the chicks.

At Christmas, our team of 30 volunteer knitters made more than 900 Lindor-stuffed decorations including puddings, trees and Santas, which raised £1,850.

“For the sixth year our crafty volunteers, local businesses, schools and organisations did an amazing job to achieve this total for us as well as raising our profile as local charity.

“I’m delighted and would like to thank everyone who helped in any way, including the 30 knitters and 28 sales outlets across North and West Yorkshire that supported us.”
