Stroll for Solidarity

 The phone box in Worthing's Styne Gardens has been given a fantastic knitted makeover by Worthing and Arun Mind and Blueprint 22. It's all wrapped up in shades of blue and white in honour of the Stroll 4 Solidarity, a 5k seafront walk taking place this Sunday,  23rd September 2012.

There were people crossing over the road from the seafront and  peering through the phonebox windows at all the little knitted flowers inside. It's really worth a look if you're in Worthing town centre over the coming week.

The Stroll 4 Solidarity starts at 10.30am on Sunday. "Everyone’s invited to go along and take part, regardless of their age or physical ability. There will be markers and marshalls along the route so that you can tailor the distance as required.  Show your support by getting some exercise in the great outdoors which is good for your emotional wellbeing." It's free to join in and show your support of this vital local charity, but if you want to get sponsorship, that would be even better, and you can download a sponsorship form here.

Once the display is over, the knitted cosy will be taken down and turned in blankets for the homeless.

 Just goes to show, graffiti knitting can be fun and help good causes at the same time.
