VIDEO: Blue was this at Diss Mere’s Mouth?

Waiting for Video...

A blue figure was causing quite a stir in Diss on Friday.

Many passersby were unsure whether it was human or mannequin - but this blue character was knitted by volunteers, aiming to raise awareness for Parkinson’s UK during Parkinson’s Awareness Week.

Nicola Robinson, information and support worker for Eastern England for the charity, told the Diss Express: “It is just a way to engage with everyone in the community across Norfolk. It has been a fantastic response.”

She added that it had caused great discussion during the week. The figure had been across Norfolk during the week, placed in various locations, including Attleborough and Norwich.
