A visually stunning installation of 10,000 yellow and blue origami cranes as a mark of solidarity with Ukraine and a symbol of what can be achieved when people come together!

Cranes for Ukraine has been made possible by the community spirit of North Tyneside and beyond. NTAS delivered a 6 month community engagement programme to enable the creation of the cranes, working with a wide variety of community groups, schools, individuals and businesses. We worked with Northumbria Healthcare Foundation NHS Trust and their charity Bright delivering workshops to staff across Wansbeck and North Tyneside General Hospital, and Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital in Cramlington.
