Worcester Cathedral volunteer and artist, Gay Adam has created mugs based on a pink Giraffe featured in a stained glass window.

The mugs and fridge magnets were made to raise funds for The Cathedral’s Undercroft Learning Project that will create a new Community and Education facility in the historic precincts of Worcester Cathedral.

The images of a pink giraffe and pairs of peacocks were chosen because they fascinate visitors. The actual pink giraffe can be seen in the Great West Window, which was completed by John Hardman & Co in 1875 and restored this year by Holy Well Glass.

Mrs Adam said: “Sometime ago, during a visit to Hardman’s in Birmingham, I enjoyed the explanation of why our pink giraffe is pink. I was told that it must have been a mistake with the temperature in the glass firing. It is a lesson not to underestimate the value of a mistake!"

Sue Carpenter, the Chairman of the Friends of Worcester Cathedral said “ We are pleased to be supporting the Undercroft Learning project through this Community initiative."
