Giraffe art spotted in hospice garden

Staff at St Richard’s took advantage of the sunshine and scattered beautifully crafted, giraffe-themed artwork around the hospice garden.

Colourful paintings, bunting, wall hangings and even painstakingly crafted origami giraffes were dotted around the garden for the day for patients, staff and visitors to enjoy.

Pictured here are Day Hospice patients Jenny Kimberlee and Sally Mayall with some of the artwork.

The giraffe theme tied in nicely with the hospice’s Worcester Stands Tall art trail – which is set to bring at least 25, beautifully decorated giraffe sculptures to Worcester for 10 weeks next summer.

Worcester Stands Tall is a Wild in Art trail which will be brought to the city by St Richard’s Hospice. Each sculpture is being sponsored by businesses and individuals from across Worcestershire, while artists from all over the country will be invited to decorate the creatures.

There is still time to sponsor a giraffe sculpture. Call Tricia Cavell, Fundraising Director, on 01905 763963, email  or visit www.worcesterstandstall.co.uk

The trail is supported by Presenting Partners Worcestershire Ambassadors and CrownGate Shopping Centre, Education Partner West Midland Safari Park and Media Partners Worcester News and Free Radio.
