Thank you for looking after dad. It helped make his final days comfortable and peaceful – for him and for all around him. We are forever grateful.

Knit a Chick!

Knitters of Warrington, our Knit a Chick for St. Rocco's is back for Easter 2019!

Knit a Chick

All you need to do is download the pattern and drop off any chicks that you’ve made at our hospice reception or post them to: Fundraising Department, St. Rocco’s Hospice, Lockton Lane, Bewsey, Warrington WA5 0BW.  

What

For any keen knitter these chicks are relatively easy to make, and seem to be a very popular gift to buy over the Easter period. For the past two years we have been inundated with little knitted friends and thanks to everyone who got involved either by hand-knitting an Easter friend, donating crème eggs or buying a knitted chick, your contribution helped us to raise over £2,000 towards patient care at St. Rocco’s Hospice. Thanks you so much!

In 2019 we’re hoping to raise even more, so spread the word and please pass on the pattern to fellow knitters who might like to get involved. The more chicks we have the more money we can raise for St. Rocco’s.

The hand-crafted chicks will then be sold in local businesses, as well as in our reception. If you would like to sell our knitted chicks in your business or work place please get in touch with Katie in the fundraising team on 01925 575780.

Not a knitter? Each chick needs be filled with a chocolate crème egg before they can be sold, so why not get involved and support our Easter campaign by donating a box of crème eggs or two.

When

Please donate chicks before Friday 29th March 2019

Why

To help us to continue care for people with life-limiting illnesses in Warrington. We support patients and families both here at St. Rocco's and in the community with services such as Hospice at Home and Rocco's on Your Doorstep.

We are a charity and rely on the local community for over 78% of our funding, so getting involved in our Knit-a-Chick appeal 2019 is a great way to support us!
