Who inspires you? Who inspires other people?

Introducing the LOOminaries - People who inspire or influence others, made using a cardboard toilet roll tube. The LOOminaries project began in March 2020 and with the help of the public the LOOminaries are growing!

Check out the gallery of LOOminaries below and the people who created them. If someone is missing, please join in! You can add your creations on Twitter and Instagram using #LOOminaries
