Eggcitement at Cullen Wealth as we totted up our donation of 100 eggs to Francis House today.
Kate Puc, from Francis House, said: “A big thank you to Cullen Wealth for your donation.”
She explained that there are still thousands of knitted chicks that need eggs. They are accepting donations until 7 March 2016.
The idea of selling little knitted chicks to cover chocolate eggs was originally hatched 14 years ago by a small group of supporters, and went nationwide in 2013.
This year, with the help of their crafty supporters across the country, hundreds of woolly little chicks have flown their nests to arrive at the hospice, where they are now waiting eggs-pectantly for a chocolate egg to put in their nest. Once filled, they will fly out to local primary schools before they hatch. Going cheep at just £1, the children shell out for a woolly friend and return the proceeds to Francis House. Each Easter they sell thousands of the knitted chicks, with last year’s appeal raising an egg-ceptional £10,000.
Could you help them by collecting eggs for their broody chicks this year? If they’re clucky enough to have your support, then get cracking drop off your egg donation to their fundraising office Francis House Children’s Hospice, 390 Parrs Wood Road, Didsbury, Manchester M20 5NA
