For several months many of Clapham-based Trinity Hospice’s volunteers have been knitting their fingers off and have produced well over 1500 egg cosies in the shape of Easter Chicks. Filled with Cadbury’s Creme eggs, kindly donated by Cadbury Schweppes Ltd, these little Chicks have been supplied to many of the local schools where they will be sold at around £1 each.

Tadpoles Nursery School, in Park Walk, Chelsea, London SW10, is one of the schools taking part. Claire Dimpfl, the owner/head of Tadpoles said: "We became involved with Trinity several years ago and are delighted that supporting the Easter Chicks campaign can help the Hospice to continue its important and incredible work."

The Easter Chicks (as well as Easter Bonnets and Easter Bunnies at £2 each) are also available from the reception area at Trinity Hospice. Now in its fifth year, the Easter fundraising campaign is expected to raise over £3000.
