Chicks for Velindre 2019


Eggs hatch for Velindre chicks!

For over 20 years members of Soroptimist International Barry and District, with  the assistance of family and friends, have supported the Velindre Hospital Chick Knit Appeal. Club President Mary Tornabene recently visited the hospital and handed over 1,000 Chicks to Carole Jacobi, Volunteer Manager.  As well as the Chicks, President Mary was also very pleased to hand over £215.50 which was raised by Club member and local florist Hilary West who, together with staff, family and customers, knitted Chicks, filled them with chocolate eggs and sold them. President Mary said she was extremely grateful to everyone who supported this Appeal.
