An Easter event which aims to be a winner with crafty kids this weekend will also be providing a welcome boost for the Garden House Hospice.
Letchworth’s Garden Square Shopping Centre has an Easter craft workshop on the holiday timetable on Saturday in aid of the hospice, which is based in the town and provides services across North Herts.
Children can personalise a knitted Charlie Chick, the hospice’s Easter mascot, along with an Easter basket. All materials will be provided, as well as a Cadbury’s Crème Egg, and creations can be taken home at the end of the day.
All you have to do to join the fun is donate £3 on the day to the hospice. Children must be three or older to take part.
More than 7,000 Charlie Chicks are expected to be snapped up across North Herts over Easter to help support the hospice’s work.

A team of knitters have been working throughout the year to make sure that there are enough chicks to meet demand.
The shopping centre also backed the hospice with a Santa’s Grotto promotion at Christmas and has named Gillison Close-based Garden House as its charity of the year.
