This tree in a patchwork quilt may confuse Bury St Edmunds’ Abbey Gardens’ squirrels but it has raised more than £1,100 for the Breast Cancer Now charity.

It was a community art projects masterminded by yarn enthusiasts Wendy Knipe, left, and Esme Crick but many of the panels were crocheted by volunteers hooked in at a crochetathon held at Oakes Barn in Bury St Edmunds in February.

Esme said: “It was absolutely phenomenal because it was so well supported. It was above and beyond what we expected.”
