Knitted Chicks for Marie Curie

Knitted Chicks for Marie Curie

Marie Curie is one of the Richmond Northampton chosen charities for the year.  Hazel Kitchener a resident at Northampton had the idea to knit Easter Chicks for charity.  Chris Rayatt the Head of Activities then organised his knitters to embark on this kitting project.

Ann Nutt aged 99, helped Chris to sew the eyes on half of them and Chris sewed them all up added eyes to the rest and all the beaks.

Chris Rayatt (Head of Activities) said “Many of our Residents have been knitting together.  Lots of Residents who used to knit for their children and grandchildren said they dusted off their needles and started knitting again. It’s been fantastic to be part of a very worthwhile cause.”

Claire Fry (Senior Village Adviser) said “this has been a wonderful Easter experience; the interest on social media has been phenomenal, we sold out of chicks within a week.  Marie Curie is close to many people’s hearts, we even had a lady living in London requested 6 on face book, her response:  Thank you so much. I will send you a cheque tomorrow but I will send a donation to Marie curie as well as I lost my lovely Dad to cancer nearly three years ago and my mum to dementia last September. I had Marie curie care for my mum as well in her final days. Thank you again.

A total of 158 chicks were knitted, selling @ £1.50 each, raising a total of £290.00 as many people made an extra donation as it was for Marie Curie.
