st helens scarecrow festival

The St Helens Scarecrow Festival is taking place this half term from 26th October until 1st November in aid of Willowbrook Hospice.

They are inviting all households across St Helens to participate in making a themed scarecrow to display outside of their house in exchange for a £5 donation to Willowbrook Hospice via their Justgiving page (here).

The idea is that all participating scarecrows will be plotted onto a map which will available for families to view, enabling them to walk / drive around their local areas in St Helens to find them.

There is a tick list attached (below) to see if you can spot 20 scarecrows!

We know that Cowleians are creative, so, if you can, get involved and please share any photos of your scarecrows with us on social media or email to We’d love to see them!
