    Weʼve raised £7,800 to Save Ribbon Circus

    Hebden Bridge, United Kingdom
    Funded on Monday, 1st February 2016

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Ribbon Circus, Hebden Bridge's much-loved haberdashery run by Helen Baron and Caroline Burton has been completely destroyed. They are in dire circumstances & the shop will need extensive refurbishment if they are to re-open.

    This famous photo of the floods was taken by Helen from their balcony & used all over the world without attribution. If everyone who shared it chucks in a quid, they'll be back on their feet in no time.

      I'm delighted to report that work has began on Ribbon Circus to refurbish it. The shop is also being made more flood resilient - the electrics are being raised, there will be lots of tiling that can be hosed down & moveable furniture that can be easily lifted out of danger.

      When I saw THAT photo (I didn't realise until now where it was taken from) yours was the first shop I thought of - because it's always been so bright, cheerful and welcoming. Good luck!
