MORE than 130 people turned out in the sunshine for a safari adventure.

'Explorers' took on St Richard's Hospice’s safari-themed walk of the city’s giraffe sculpture trail, Worcester Stands Tall, on Sunday, July 22.

Intrepid explorers of all ages pulled on pairs of furry giraffe ears, before setting out on either a three or six-mile route discovering the trail’s giant, painted giraffes.

Money raised by the walk will go toward the St Richard’s Hospice Build 2020 Appeal to extend and redevelop its building in Worcester.

Sara Matthews, Project Manager for Worcester Stands Tall, said: “We had a really lovely day exploring the trail in the sunshine, with plenty of laughter, selfies and giraffe-appreciation along the way.

“We’d like to thank all our walkers, volunteers and supporters. The money raised by this walk will go to supporting the hospice’s appeal, enabling it to care for more patients and their loved ones in the future.”

On the day, the team from David Lloyd warmed up the crowd before setting out, and on the route, explorers were rewarded with a range of goodies.

Walkers taking on the full safari covered around six miles and visited each of the trail’s 30 giant giraffes – while those doing the shorter three-mile route discovered 15 of the sculptures.

The giant giraffes will be auctioned this October to raise money for the hospice’s Build 2020 Appeal. The cost for the Hospice's redevelopment is £5.3m.
