We’re very pleased to support Yorkshire Air Ambulance this year and help contribute to the cost of keeping their two yellow helicopters flying across Yorkshire.
Yorkshire Air Ambulance as a Charity relies on the generosity of individuals and organisations to help save lives across Yorkshire. To keep both of Yorkshire’s air ambulances in the air they need to raise £12,000 per day which is equivalent to £4.4 million per year, so fundraising is vital to ensure its future.
Thank you so much from the Yarndale Team and Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
Worldwide Creative Project
One of the most exciting parts of Yarndale is the creative challenges we set – and the enthusiastic response from everyone who joins in.
In previous years, our creative projects have involved people from all over the world and your beautiful creations have been proudly displayed at the show bringing a heart-warming visual celebration of colour, community and creativity to Skipton Auction Mart.
Visitors have been able to walk under a kilometre of colourful woolly bunting strung from the ceiling, or gaze at a stunning array of more than a thousand crocheted mandalas for example.
And they have helped raise awareness and much needed funds for our charity partners.
So, we are very excited to launch our new Worldwide Creative Project for 2022 and to announce that Yorkshire Air Ambulance will be our chosen charity for this year.
Our challenge for you this year is to create colourful crocheted or knitted chain bunting in any colour to be displayed at this year’s Yarndale on the 24th and 25th September.
Carole from the Yarndale team has produced a simple pattern for crocheted and knitted chain bunting with 10 links, suitable for crocheters and knitters of all abilities. 10 links for our 10th Birthday!
The dimensions are 23cm x 6.5cm.
The pattern is available to download here.
You can make as many chains as you’d like. Please send them to the address below by 1st September 2022, including your name and town/country .
