Young Beth from the Irish Countrywomen’s Association in Delgany has been in touch about a sweet fundraising event taking over Greystones in June.
Over the first two weeks of the month, the town will be yarnbombed, as woolly creations will be popping up to make the town colourful, and warm.
And it’s all in aid of a fine charity.
Here’s Beth with the details…
Over the first two weeks of June, Greystones town will transform into a spectacular exhibition of yarnbombing – odds and ends of yarn, knitted, crocheted and sewn by ICA members to adorn trees and street furniture.
New and regular Greystones visitors will enjoy the delightfully surprising and fun pops of colour during their strolls at the harbour with Mr. Beach Bear on the seafront modelling his new ensemble accompanied by a collection of octopuses!Meridian Point Centre will be decorated with wonderfully handcrafted bunting and flowers. And, of course, not forgetting Meridian’s own Mr. Horse, who will be modelling his new outfit!
We have been overwhelmed with the support and encouragement received from Wicklow County Council, Greystones Tidy Towns and local businesses of our gorgeous town. Men’s Shed even offered their help with the loftier decorating! We are now confident we could not only reach but exceed our ambitious goal!
Our Charity of choice is Children’s Mental Health at Temple Street Foundation (St. Francis Clinic). Any donations, big or small are much appreciated. Bucket collectors will be at the harbour and in Meridian Point Centre.
Boom! So, look out for some naughty knitted nonsense in Greystones as June gets underway. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info, and meet the Woolly Bullies themselves right here.
