Bildeston Scarecrow Competition

The Bidleston Scarecrow Festival took place last weekend, with a total of 74 scarecrows on display, and the event raising £1,284 for Suffolk Community Foundation. BBC Suffolk presenter Mark Murphy acted as judge to choose the best entries!

We hope that this may have inspired you to make a donation to the fund, or create a fundraising challenge of your own…

It’s been brilliant, the atmosphere has been great and we’ve had some fantastic scarecrows. Everyone has rallied round to donate some great prizes, the community spirit has really shone through. There’s also been quite a competitive spirit, but in a good way.
