An artist is planning to create a sculpture out of 18,250 knitted and crocheted forget-me-nots to raise awareness of the need for more dementia nurses.
And artist Tsui Du, who is based in Norwich, has called on volunteers to help her assemble the piece, which will eventually resemble a series of connected hands.
The crafted flowers were made by volunteers as part of a Wymondham Dementia Support Group project.
Dianne Fernee, group organiser, said: 'The sculpture will look amazing, and will certainly make a statement and have a big impact.
'Tsui thought it would be a great opportunity for any young artists or any other volunteers to get involved and help her out with putting it together.'

Once completed, the sculpture will go on display at the Norfolk and Norwich Millennium Library at The Forum for Dementia Awareness Week from May 14 to May 20,
Anyone interested in getting involved in the project can call Mrs Fernee on 07712 727897.
