For 24 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 Norma Reynolds recently visited the hospital and handed over 800 Chicks to David Harding, their Operational Manager. As well as the Chicks, President Norma was also very pleased to hand over £100, which was raised by Club member and local florist Hilary West who, together with staff, friends and customers, knitted Chicks, filled them with chocolate eggs and sold them. President Norma said she was extremely grateful to everyone who supported this Appeal.
Every year the Velindre Appeal needs 50,000 Knitted Chicks to fulfil demand and is always looking for new knitters. If anyone would like to be involved please contact Kate Hammond at Kate.Hammond@wales.nhs.uk 02920 196116
