Easter knitted chicksLast changed: Thursday 22 March, 2018

Knitters display their chicks

Chick out our knitted friends

Volunteer knitters have come up with a purler – they’ve made royal wedding chicks to raise funds for us this Easter.

More than 30 knitters from across Yorkshire and as far away as France have produced the Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, Archbishop of Canterbury and wedding guest novelties, which are stuffed with Creme Eggs kindly donated by Cadbury.

Where to buy

You can buy your very own chicks for £2 each at the following locations:

  • All Carers’ Resource offices
  • The Jewellery Workshop, Bingley
  • The Little Stationery Shop, Shipley
  • Helene’s Tea Room, Skipton
  • Tesco customer services desk, Skipton
  • The Rowan Tree, Skipton
  • Harrogate Hair & Beauty, Harrogate
  • Noir Hairdresser, Harrogate
  • Spring Gables Surgery, Harrogate
  • Feastfield Medical Centre, Harrogate
  • The Grange Medical Centre, Harrogate
  • Kathryn Elliott Osteopath, Knaresborough

Our chicks are also on sale in NHS staff rooms, businesses and schools around our patch. Thank you so much for your support.

If you don’t want a chick but would like to donate £2 (or more if you would like) you can do so on this Charity Checkout page.

If you would like to sell chicks for us or knit for us in the future, please contact Anne Wells on 01423 500555 or email
