    King's Girls support Francis House

    King’s Senior Girls have shown their egg-cellent community spirit to support the Francis House ‘Easter Chick Knit’ campaign.


    The inventive girls managed to donate a staggering 1200 crème eggs to the appeal, having written to many local shops and supermarkets to help them in their ambitions to beat the 1,191 eggs donated last year.


    Each school House was trying to generate more eggs than the other, with Adlington House being the ultimate winners.


    Every year, crafty supporters of Francis House from across the world knit thousands of little woolly chicks. The chicks are then filled with a donated chocolate egg and sold in schools, stores and businesses all over Greater Manchester to raise funds for the hospice.

    Francis House, which requires £11,500 a day to run, offers care for children and young adults who have a life-limiting or life-threatening condition, and provide essential support for their families.


    Last year, more than 40,000 chicks were knitted and filled with chocolate eggs, helping the campaign to raise over £50,000!
