For months, dedicated crafters across the two counties have got out their knitting needles and crochet hooks to make hundreds of bright yellow helicopters and post box toppers to help spread the word of the charity’s life-saving work.

Helicopters are landing on post boxes, in parks, on gate posts, in shops, on park benches and even in churches!  Every corner of Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire is being covered as more come in to land daily! Please let us know when you spot a knitted or crocheted helicopter, lets try and see 1,000 helis before the end of summer.
