There’s a festive deer in Piccadilly at the moment made from rubbish that glows when you make a donation to charity.
It’s on display in the garden outside St James’s Church just down the road from Piccadilly Circus.
It’s a life-size sculpture and has been made from 2,000 waste bottles to encourage people to cut down on plastic waste.
As part of the Hart installation, there is a £3 tap donation point to raise money for the Church’s charity which offers night shelters for the homeless, support for asylum seekers and free counselling services. Every tap donation will see the Hart light up with beautiful illumination, creating a magical moment that visitors are sure to remember.
The Hart of London, designed and created by Faith Bebbington, is on display until 6 January
This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
