The mystery crocheter has designed a new Peter Rabbit post box topper to help raise money for Alzheimer’s Society.

The topper inspired by the famous children’s tale has appeared in Abingdon Market Place outside the Nursery Shop.

The woolly yarn bomb is not just there to spread joy, it is also helping to raise money for a charity that fights Alzheimer’s.

The mystery crocheter left a note on the post box that reads: “I hope that my post box toppers bring a smile to you, I was thinking that this may be a way to raise money for charity so if you have enjoyed seeing them then maybe you’d like to donate to a Just Giving Page. The chosen charity is Alzheimer’s Society.”

This new topper comes after children’s favourite Postman Pat – and his black and white cat – made by a mystery crocheter in February to mark World Book Day vanished.

It was thought by residents that the post box topper that spread happiness in the town was taken.

This was not the first time the mystery crocheters work has been taken. It was also thought the Christmas nativity scene was stolen.

Now a small note on the post box from the creator pleads with people to leave it alone and simply enjoy it. The note says: “All I ask is for you to leave him here for all to enjoy.”
