Members of the Wilberfoss Scarecrow Committee were delighted to hand over a cheque for £292 to Marie Curie this week raised at this month’s Scarecrow Festival.

Overall the festival raised £876 and the rest will be divided between the Wilberfoss WI and the Wilberfoss Community Centre

Over 30 scarecrows were displayed on 7th and 8th September, with a ‘Great Britons’ theme drawing in visitors from across the region.

Mandy Brisco, from the Wilberfoss Scarecrow Committee, said: “We’re delighted to have raised so much for 3 local charities. Everyone who made scarecrows was fantastic, they looked brilliant. We are planning to do it again next year and the theme will be children’s TV characters.”
