Worcester gritting and snow clearance firm AA Salt was a key supporter of last summer’s Worcester Stands Tall campaign. Keen to contribute to St Richard’s Hospice, through what was one of the city’s biggest ever public arts campaigns, the company purchased two giraffe sculptures.
One was designed by pupils at Bowbrook House School and now sits in the school’s playground. The other, crafted by local artist Emily Sparkes, stood proudly on the banks of the River Severn during the summer.
Once the campaign was over, the company purchased another giraffe which is now displayed in the garden of retired founder governor of St Richard’s Hospice, Jeannie Young MBE.
Director Nikki Rogers said: “The Worcester Stands Tall campaign not only raised funds for the amazing St Richard’s Hospice, but also added so much colour and joy to the city. We were delighted to be involved and actively give something back.”
