A TREE on the Bancroft Gardens in Stratford-upon-Avon covered with 1,500 colourful knitted patches has raised £5,132 for charity.
The ‘Remembering Tree’ was yarn bombed at the start of the month by charity workers from Bidford-based charity Goodwill and Growth for Africa UK (Gaga).
Residents were then invited to give a minimum of £5 by Monday 16th December to devote one of the squares to a loved one.
Four hundred people took up the opportunity, and on Friday, a special board with the names of their loved ones will be erected next to the tree.
The full list of names will also be printed on p7 of Thursday's Herald.
The patches are staying on the tree until the middle of January.
