For ten weeks this summer Worcester’s streets, parks and open spaces will be brought to life by giraffes.

More than 25 giraffe sculptures will tower over residents and visitors for Worcester Stands Tall – a Wild in Art event brought to the city by St Richard’s Hospice.

The individually designed, 2.5m tall sculptures will appear throughout the city from Monday, July 9 to Sunday, September 16 – inspiring residents and visitors to uncover Worcester’s cultural gems and discover areas they may not have explored before.

At the end of the project, the sculptures will be auctioned to raise vital funds for the St Richard’s Hospice Build 2020 Appeal.

Each year, St Richard’s Hospice provides free, specialist palliative care to more than 3,000 patients, their loved ones and bereaved people across the county.

The hospice strives to provide the best medical, practical, emotional and social support it can to help people live life to the fullest, as independently as they can, for as long as they can.

The Build 2020 Appeal is aiming to raise the final £1.4m needed to build a bigger hospice, enabling more patients and families to be cared for in Worcestershire.

The total cost for expanding and redeveloping the existing building in Wildwood Drive, Worcester, is £5.3m.

We are very grateful for all donations towards our care.
