Yellow ribbons around Burntwood

Before Stephen Sutton even died we started seeing yellow ribbons around our town. Nobody really knows how it started, and many weren’t sure why they had started appearing, let alone why the ribbons were yellow.

They were in fact a sign of support, a way of showing you’d donated perhaps. Now, since the sad passing of Stephen, pretty much everyone has a yellow ribbon on their house. It’s not just the odd house either. There’s yellow ribbons everywhere, with Swan Island particularly yellow.

Stunning. This video probably sums it up best.

Oh, and as of now there’s pretty much £4 million donated to the Teenage Cancer Trust.
