When Jan Smith’s husband was diagnosed with prostate cancer, she wanted to keep her mind and hands occupied to help her through a difficult time. She soon mastered the art of knitting and has been creating goods for Saint Francis Hospice ever since.

The coronavirus pandemic inspired Jan to reach for her needles and create some COVID-19 bunnies. Upon request, Jan is willing to create any type of character you wish. From nurses, police officers, and footballers sporting the kit of your favourite club, to brides and grooms for your wedding tables.

The bunnies hold an all-important bottle of hand sanitiser, and can even be tailored to don a face mask to keep the coronavirus at bay. The animals cost just £5 each and make unique presents. The money from your purchase will go straight to where it’s needed most: helping local people living with life-limiting illnesses

Jan has just reached the £500 mark, yet her versatility doesn’t stop there. Her skills also involve meeting and greeting on reception, helping to organise volunteers, and providing support on OrangeLine, the Saint Francis Hospice’s service for people who are going through a bereavement or feeling lonely and isolated
