St Albans Postboxes Summer Toppers Trail
23rd July 2020 - 31st August 2020Free
St Albans Postboxes are back again this Summer! The creative fundraiser is organised by St Albans based translation agency Atlas Translations Limited as well as the crochet creative Candy Stuart and her team of yarnbombing enthusiasts.
ST ALBANS POSTBOXES SUMMER YARNBOMB
From Thursday 23rd July 2020 to 31st August 2020 a total of twelve postboxes in St Albans will be yarnbombed with floral arrangements crafted from wool. This Summer the postbox toppers have a floral theme and the aim is to raise the spirits of the local community, while also raising money for charities that are in desperate need of funds due to a drop in fund-raising and a rise in demand for their services. The Flower Trail will brighten up the streets of St Albans.
Expect poppies, sunflowers, daisies and even lily pads and bees! The colourful postbox toppers have been carefully created by talented individuals and groups and all the time and materials are donated. Led by Candy Stuart thanks goes to Lucy Dronfield, Herts Belles WI, Phyllis Sweeney, Abby Sneade and Jefferson Crafts.
Atlas Translations Limited have been organising St Albans Postboxes yarnbombing fundraisers since December 2018. Every year the designs are more elaborate, the fundraising targets get bigger and the amazing local community raise their game and donate. In December 2019 St Albans Postboxes campaign raised a staggering £12,325.99. You can find out more about previous yarnbombing campaigns here. This Summer is the first ever fundraiser to take place in July and August and the team behind the crochet creations have everything crossed that the local community will come together once again to support St Albans Postboxes.
