Members of the Welsh National Opera have found a ‘cheep’ and cheerful way of keeping themselves occupied backstage at MK Theatre, while fundraising for Breakthrough Breast Cancer Care.
The singers – who are appearing as various animals in WNO’s The Cunning Little Vixen – are knitting egg cosies to raise cash for the charity.
Inside each finished chick is a chocolate creme egg, and at £2 each they are flying out of the coop!
Singer Sarah Pope is behind the mammoth chick-knit. She said: “I lost my mum to breast cancer so this is a charity very close to my heart.”
