Elmer’s Big Parade Plymouth – in support of St Luke’s Hospice
For 10 weeks in the summer of 2019 a parade of 40 fabulously colourful and unique elephants were displayed around the beautiful city of Plymouth and surrounding areas. From the hustle and bustle of the city streets to the peace and grandeur of the Hoe, and from the green spaces of Plymouth to the spectacular coastline; Elmer’s Big Parade Plymouth took people on a tour of Britain’s Ocean City. St Luke’s Hospice Plymouth worked in partnership with Wild in Art and Andersen Press to bring this mass participation, family friendly, art trail to life; featuring the much beloved children’s character of Elmer, by Devon born artist and author David McKee.
The Elmer sculptures raised a staggering £323,750 at auction to support the work of St Luke’s Hospice.
