Heart installation appears in Cornwall for Syrian refugee appeal
Over 2,000 flags were planted in Cornwall today to form a giant heart to support Syrian refugees.
The installation has been placed close to Jamaica Inn on Bodmin Moor by Cornish artists Caroline Cleave and Franca Westaway to raise awareness and money for Oxfam's Syria Crisis Appeal.
They took months to plan the installation and have made the flags by hand. The pair are appealing for people to raise money for Oxfam's work in Syria where the charity is providing water and sanitation facilities to thousands of refugees in Jordan and Lebanon.
The art installation is called Have a Heart for Syria.

Caroline Cleave who is married to Jon Cleave, a member of The Fisherman’s Friends singing group, hopes the art installation will travel across the UK and she and Franca already have plans to install the art at another secret location in Devon.
They hope the heart will eventually travel all the way to the refugee camps in Jordan and Lebanon.
She said: “One little red flag can't achieve much on its own, but collectively they can make something amazing and beautiful. All of the hard work and months spent planning the installation have proved worthwhile because now we can see the final installation it does look absolutely beautiful and we hope people will be inspired to sponsor and donate to the appeal.’’
