With Easter just round the corner, we are calling out to our knitting community to get involved in our 2018 Knitting Appeal.

We’re looking for crafty knitters to join our Knit-a-Chick Campaign and make these friendly chicks, whose tummies are filled with a tasty chocolate egg. Please put your needles to work and knit up as many little chicks as you can. Chicks can be as colourful as you please; the quirkier, the better!

The chicks will then be sold in the hospital to raise vital funds for Medway Hospital. All you need to do is download and follow the knitting pattern.

Copies of the knitting pattern can also be collected from the fundraising team at the hospital, or give us a call and we will be more than happy to post one to you.

Once you have made as many chicks as you can, please drop them off at the Education Centre reception or post them to: Knitting Campaign, Communications Team, Medway Maritime Hospital, Windmill Road, Gillingham, Kent ME7 5NY

We’re also looking for donations of chocolate eggs to fill their tummies, so if you can’t knit but would like to donate chocolate, please get in touch.

For more information call Donna or Cheryl on 01634 830000 Ext: 5398 or email medwayft.charity@nhs.net
