Easter Chicks Fundraiser

Ros Burrell, Maddie’s mummy has brought us a great fundraiser of knitted Easter Chicks for the children. Ros has been busy knitting Easter Chicks that we will be selling in the playground.

Can you help with our Easter Chicks Fundraiser? We need to source crème egg sized eggs; do you have a contact who would donate the eggs to school to fit into the Easter Chicks? If so, please contact Sarah Lynch at school or text 0779 2253944.

Can you knit? If you can please find attached the pattern from Ros. Please let us know if you are busy knitting and we will provide the little chick eyes for you.

If we have enough knitted chicks donated, we intend to challenge the children to sell them to friends and family. For every chick they sell, we will give them a free raffle ticket to win a fabulous Easter gift.

Look out for further updates soon.

Here is the chick pattern from Ros;

            

Cast in 20sts

4 rows of k1, p1, k1, p1 ....

8 rows of plain stitch

Cast off 6 stitches’ either end

8 stitches left for head

9 rows plain stitch. 

Then cast off.  Leave the long wool end and use this to sew up your chick!  

Thank you for your support,

Friends of School
