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.
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.
During this challenging time, we are doing our utmost to continue caring for the patients and loved ones who need us most.
The way we work has been adapted, with many of our services delivered remotely – such as over the phone, or by video call. And we are working closely with other health care professionals in Worcestershire to share knowledge and expertise at this time.
