WI ladies get cracking this Easter

When a group of ladies got together, they came up with a cracking creative idea to help raise funds.

Members of Great and Little Warley Women's Institute have been busy knitting 110 Easter chicks.  Fundraiser Maureen Ballard with members of the Great and Little Warley WI 2 


A small chocolate egg is placed inside each chick before they are sold for a donation.  "I've had lots of friends who have had family cared for by the Hospice and we are really happy to be able to do what we can to support the Hospice so it can keep going," said WI member Maureen Short.     


Hospice Fundraiser Maureen Ballard added, "We are very grateful for this very generous donation.     


"The ladies are so creative and while they may see it as a small thing to do, it makes a huge difference to us."
