Charity Yarn Bombing – Part 1

What an incredible and creative project! We absolutely love the idea of decorating public spaces with handmade beauties and gorgeous colours, this would certainly brighten up your Monday morning trip to the doctors! Located at Hackness Road Surgery in Scarborough, this project is particularly special as it was all to raise money for St. Catherine’s Hospice. Each hand-crafted piece was auctioned off to the public and the earning were given straight to this fantastic charity.

Some of the decorations can still be found at Hackness Road Surgery in Scarborough, so if you’re a local you can take a look for yourself! Here are just some of the photos from the event. For more photos, head to thegrangerange blog or facebook page.

The displays were manned over the August bank holiday weekend when we had the majority of our visitors. All the items were given a number and visitors could place a bid to buy whatever took their fancy in a sealed box.

A couple of weeks before the opening we started to stir local folk and patients curiosity when the tree on the roadside was wrapped in a clourful blanket. Patient’s would come into reception and ask “is the tree poorly’? There is a bus stop opposite and we would giggle as we watched people waiting for a bus chatter and point inquisitively.
