My story

St Albans Postboxes are back for 2021!

Our 2020 yarn bomb was a phenomenal success, raising over £26000.

This year we’re aiming for more toppers and raising even more for our chosen charities – Youth Talk and ADD-Vance.

We remind you that all the #stalbanspostboxes toppers have been made with love, imagination and possibly some swearing, and at no cost, by volunteers. Business sponsors have been identified and generously gave their money, and prizes! Admin, emails, phone calls, helpers, web designers and hosters, map artists, app designers, photographers, Facebookers, bloggers, Instagrammers, all donating time and expertise behind the scenes. So, whatever you do, please, please, please donate whatever you can.

We choose charities for the work that they do locally and for the wide range of people they support in and around St Albans.

Thank you for checking out my page. Making a donation is fast, easy and secure thanks to Give as you Live Donate. They'll take your donation and pass it onto The ADD-vance ADHD and Autism Trust and YOUTH TALK.

My updates


Another crazy day in postbox topper land! This morning a missing topper was located hanging off some traffic lights, and tonight a missing snowman was discovered at the local War Memorial. We are really hoping for a quiet 24 hours with just donations arriving and all our toppers staying put!

Such a busy time! We have been featured on BBC News online, and the Daily Mail online and print versions. Today we have raised over £13000 and we are so grateful for each and every donation.

Last week a choirboy was rescued and returned to his topper; some other figures have been removed from the topper at the Clock Tower by vandals. We hope they will turn up somewhere and we carry on the spreading the joy that these toppers are bringing. Thank you all for your support.

Choir boy removed from his topper but has been washed, dried, given an espresso by his rescuer and will be back in position asap!

We are live! A cold but fabulous launch full of joy, excitement - and relief! All 82 toppers are now in position - so get hunting, and thank you for donating.

Getting so close to launch now, and we are so excited - over £11000 already raised. HQ is a sea of wool and laminated tags. We can't wait for you to start finding all the magical toppers - and to see your donations start to arrive!
