Get Creative!

Create a creature or produce a person and put it on your patch for all to see!

If you live in the M33 postcode, join together this Summer with friends, family, neighbours, your school or organisation and create a spectacular scarecrow for the Scarecrow Safari.

The fun kicks off with lots of scarecrow activities at the Sale and District Lions Father’s Day Fete, Worthington Park, Sale, at 12pm on Sunday 16th June 2019.

All proceeds to charity.  Sale and District Lions and Act4Africa are joining together to help local communities in Sale and Uganda.
