THERE are just a few weeks left before an arts trail of giraffe sculptures is unveiled across Worcester.

Worcester Stands Tall, a project brought to the city by Wild in Art, will take place from July 9 to September 16 and will raise money for St Richards Hospice.

Amongst the many artists involved is 24-year-old Catt Standen.

Miss Standen said: “It’s been so overwhelming – not only to be chosen as an artist but also to be a part of a project that is fantastic in every way.”

Worcester Cathedral is supporting Miss Standen’s sculpture, which will soon be unveiled to the public alongside 56 others.

Birmingham based, award winning artist Amrit Singh, known as MrASingh, has a colourful theme behind his sculpture.

“We are all born to stand out, we’re all different, unique and beautiful, but it’s in our diversity that connects us all together.

"Sometimes, all we need to do is break away from the monochromatic shell and be our true colourful, vibrant selves.”

Amongst the sponsors for the project is global manufacturing company, Southco Manufacturing Ltd.

Suzanne Fitzmaurice, compensation and benefits manager, Europe, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be part of this very special initiative.

“It’s a wonderful and very different opportunity for us to give something back to the community by supporting St Richard’s Hospice and helping to promote Worcester city itself through the Wild in Art creative trail.”

Other sponsors include Spire South Bank Hospital, The Hopmarket Charity, and Andrew Grant estate agent.
