Following the magical Great North Snowdogs of 2016 we’ve teamed up with charity St Oswald’s Hospice for a second time to bring another public art trail to the North East. Working with Andersen Press, Elmer’s Great North Parade is inspired by another well-known character from children’s literature – Elmer the patchwork elephant.
James Ellam, Chief Executive, St Oswald’s Hospice
St Oswald’s Hospice provides specialist care for North East adults, young people and children with incurable conditions, and support for family and loved ones. The charity needs to raise over £7 million each year through voluntary giving and legacies to continue to provide services to the local community. No charge is made to patients for the services provided ensuring hospice care is available to all.
