A VALE of Clwyd shop window is exhibiting a homemade Magic Roundabout display for charity.

Susan Butcher, from Ruthin, has been chosen to display her self made Magic Roundabout, including characters and garden, in the shop front to North Wales’ AM Antoinette Sandbach’s office on the High Street in Denbigh.

Susan’s Magic Roundabout will be displayed in the shop window until March 14 to raise money for children’s charity Hope House.

Susan is holding a competition with a £50 crash prize for adults and a goodies hampers for children.

To enter forms are available in Denbigh and both of Ruthin’s Co-operative stores.
It is £1 to enter and all money raised will go to Hope House.

The winner will also be asked where they think the Magic Roundabout display should go onto after the competition closes.

Susan said: “It’s taken me 18 months to make the full Magic Roundabout display with all the characters.

“I decided to do it after I found some small clogs and thought I could do it. I always like to do things like this at home.

“Everything is made from hand and I tried to make the characters as identical as possible or as close as I could make them.”

Susan works for Ruthin Co-op, just outside the town centre, which has chosen Hope House as its charity to raise money for.

Antoinette urged community groups, schools, youth organisation or charities to get in touch with her last year to use the window space of her office on the high street in Denbigh.

It could be to publicise the work they do, show off an award or display art and craft work or to attract more members to groups.
