Local knitters raise hundreds for cancer charity

Local knitters raise hundreds for cancer charity

Fairmount nursing home has raised £200 for the Marie Curie Hospice in Bradford, thanks to the generosity of its staff, residents’ families and local volunteers.

 

Czajka Care Group’s Fairmount Nursing Home sold Easter chicks that were knitted by local volunteers, with a tasty Cadbury’s Cream Egg tucked inside, to raise £200 for the charity, and £145.50 for its own residents’ fund.

Pamela Ward, registered manager, at Fairmount Nursing Home in Nab Wood, Shipley, said: “We started the charity challenge in Easter but carried on selling them for months afterwards because we had received hundreds of the knitted chicks! We were overwhelmed by the generosity of people donating their time and knitting skills to help us raise the money. We had plenty of help from our staff and the families of our residents, but the fact that so many people from our local community helped us too, was lovely.”

The Marie Curie Hospice cares for local people who are living with a terminal illness, and their families. Czajka Care Group’s residents’ fund helps to pay for a wide range of days out and events for residents to enjoy.

Pamela added: “The money from this fundraising event is specifically contributing to our resident friendly garden, where we already grow our own herbs and flowers. It’s a delightful and highly accessible place, where our residents can enjoy being outside in the fresh air, whilst gardening and tending to the flowers.”
