To accumulate money

I was asked to help with a installation piece for Pendle Youth, to bring attention to the cuts and how many young people will miss out. So my task was to somehow demonstrate the thousands of young people using pebbles. I remembered that when you go up Pendle Hill some walkers pick up pebbles and drop them into piles (cairns) along the way,this cleverly shows the amount of people traffic, so I will use this with matchstick men in simple pink and blue to show sexes.

I've had to wash and dry 1200 pebbles,seems like a simple task hmmm,I got to the point of answering my phone "HELLO BEACH" and my kitchen was covered.

The stick men will take all night and tomorrow I'm selling my clothes!
