Based on the much loved children’s character, Elmer the Patchwork Elephant, 55 individually designed elephants will be popping-up all around Ipswich, including our very own elephant, Stella the Storyteller.
Designed in collaboration with renowned Suffolk wildlife artist, Laura Beardsell-Moore, and drawing inspiration from the original Patchwork Elmer with her fabulous quirks and colours, Stella’s patchwork is instead made of stories and much-loved memories. Illustrations depicting the ‘Life Well Lived‘ stories from our colleagues’ relations, cared for by St Elizabeth Hospice.
Stella will be on display outside our Ipswich office until 14th September as part of the parade, and to celebrate and help raise money for this fantastic cause, we will also be hosting a number of children’s story telling sessions over the summer (available to book below), as well as short story competitions. Be sure to follow Stella on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook to get involved.
The Hospice plays a vital role in the Suffolk community and we are thrilled to be able to support them. If you would like to make a donation to the Hospice, please click here.
