Charlie Chicks fly to new heights

Thank you so much to everyone who took part in this year’s Charlie Chick campaign.

We are delighted to announce that despite an incredibly challenging year, sales of our little yellow knitted chicks – all of which came with a Cadbury Crème egg - exceeded all expectations and raised more than £14,100.

Every penny will be donated to the care of patients, families and carers facing life limiting illnesses in our community.

Jean Allinson from our Fundraising Team commented:

"We are so thankful to everyone in our community for getting behind our annual Charlie Chick campaign. Restrictions prevented the usual sale of Charlie Chicks in many locations and businesses across the region this year, however we are hugely grateful to the shops, local businesses, schools, restaurants and individuals, including all three of our local MPs, who were able to participate.

“Our thanks go once again to DLRC for donating 11,000 Cadbury Crème eggs and to everyone who helped knit the 11,000 chicks that ‘flew the nest’ out into the community.

“The campaign would also not have run this year without the support of the Friends of Garden House Hospice (FOGHHS), who have been instrumental in organising the distribution and collection of the chicks, so huge thanks and credit goes to them."
