The Frenchgate Shopping Centre and The Doncaster Cancer Detection Trust are pleased to announce stage one of the Miles of Scarves campaign and exhibition is now completed and on display within the centre at Debenhams.
This chandelier style display contains approximately 1 miles of scarves, all of which have been donated by the generous people of Doncaster The initial target for Frenchgate and The DCDT was to reach a single mile of scarves, however, we failed to anticipate the generous nature of the Doncaster people and quickly surpassed the original mile. This lead to the birth of “Miles of Scarves”. The aim now is to collect as many additional miles as possible and progress this astonishing display throughout the centre.
The idea behind this exhibit and indeed the appeal, is to allow everyone to touch, feel and experience the display, just as everyone has touched, felt or experienced cancer in some way, be it themselves directly or through a cherished friend or family member.
Look out for the second stage going up around centre within the coming weeks. Why not let us know what you think of the displays on Facebook or Twitter.
