Local Knitters Urged To 'Cast On' For Charity Chick Challenge

Local Knitters Urged To 'Cast On' For Charity Chick Challenge

Fairmount Park Nursing Home is appealing to anyone with a passion for knitting, to help with a charitable appeal that will raise money for the Marie Curie Hospice in Bradford.

The home plans to sell the knitted Easter chicks with a tasty Cadbury’s Cream Egg tucked inside, in a bid to raise money for the local charity and its own residents’ fund.

Manager of Fairmount Park Nursing Home, Pamela Ward, said: “It’s a really exciting time for all our staff and residents in the run up to Easter as we will be welcoming living eggs into our home for 10 days in March, and we will be able to see them hatch. We know that everyone in the home will find this really interesting, and we believe it’s a great initiative that will involve everyone in our lovely community.

“To tie in with this very ‘egg-citing’ time, we wanted to ask anyone who loves knitting to help make as many of the Easter chicks as possible, which we will sell for £1.50. The money raised will be divided between the Marie Curie Hospice, which we have a close relationship with, and our residents’ fund, which helps to pay for a wide range of days out and events for our residents to enjoy.

“The money from this fundraising event though, will specifically contribute to our resident friendly garden, where we already grow our own herbs and flowers. It’s a delightfully accessible place where our residents can enjoy being outside in the fresh air, whilst gardening and tending to the flowers.”

The Marie Curie Hospice cares for local people who are living with a terminal illness, and their families.

Anyone interested in knitting some Easter chicks can contact Pamela Ward for the pattern and wool on 01274 592922 or email enq@fairmountltd.co.uk
