"A BLACKWOOD woman knitted more than 20,000 toy chicks to raise funds for the Velindre Hospital.

Bev Parry, 55 of Pontllanfraith, started knitting the fluffy toys 15 years ago after seeing an advert about the Chick Knit Appeal for the Cardiff hospital.

Now Mrs Parry knits every spare minute she has and has raised more than £20,000 through her work.
