Mercian Events work with St. Richards Hospice- A Wild Art Event


St Richards Hospice Mercian Events

We are proud to have been chosen by St Richards Hospice to assist them at the launch of a truly outstanding and innovative fund raising project to raise funds for people affected by life limiting illnesses. The Wild Art Event launch was held in Worcester’s impressive Guildhall a few weeks ago.

This amazing imaginative idea called Worcester Stands Tall will see twenty five large and beautifully decorated giraffes standing tall in streets, parks and open spaces throughout the City of Worcester during the summer months of 2018.

Worcester Stands Tall is supported by partners Worcestershire Ambassadors, Crowngate and also media partners Free Radio and Worcester News as well as companies and individuals from around the county.

The sculptured 3D giraffes, over 2.5m high, will be brought to life by regional and national artists. There will also be an extensive schools programme with baby giraffe sculptures. At the end of the ten week project the decorated sculptures will be auctioned to raise vital funds for the free ongoing care and support offered by St Richards hospice each year to some 3,000 patients, carers, loved ones and the bereaved affected by life limiting illnesses.
