Pupils help create something ‘elephantastic’
Pupils at North Worcester Primary Academy have decorated an elephant calf as part of Worcester's Big Parade.
Worcester's Big Parade will see sixty-five decorated elephant sculptures, both big and small, forming a stunning, free art trail through the city’s streets and open spaces, bringing together the community for one unforgettable event.
The project builds on the hugely successful Worcester Stands Tall giraffe trail in 2018, which saw giraffe sculptures displayed across the city before raising £210,000 for the hospice at auction.
Each sculpture will be sponsored by a business and individually designed by an artist from the Worcestershire area or further afield. NWPA’s elephant has been created by all the children at the school.
“Every single child at school has made a part of this.. we are very proud!” Mrs Calvert, Headteacher
We don't want to give too much away about the elephant artwork until the big reveal on the 12th July, but it'll definitely 'bee' one to look out for!
When the event ends in September, each elephant will be auctioned to raise funds for St Richard’s Hospice.
