Elmer hits the road thanks to Bell Truck and Van

Mercedes-Benz dealer, Bell Truck and Van, has donated a Vito van to transport Elmer to all of his personal appearances in the run up to the his trail later this year.

Wrapped in beautiful Elmer branding it will take the Patchwork Elephant to visit his fans at events and to meet art trail sponsors to thank them for their support.

This month alone, the Elmer sculpture has been out and about in his new Elmer-mobile taking part in the Celebration of Tourism in North East England event at Newcastle Cathedral and visiting art trail sculpture sponsors at The Customs House, South Shields.

He also be met shoppers at the Bridges in Sunderland and networked with businesses at Newcastle Eagles to encourage new sponsors to join the herd.

His month will then draw to a close, with a visit to Newcastle Racecourse and a trip to Northumberland Zoo.

“Elmer has a mammoth task ahead of him over the coming months and we are delighted to be able to help him tour the North East in style,”

The commitment shown by St Oswald’s Hospice in improving palliative care and the lives of people with incurable conditions has really struck a chord with us and we are proud to be given the opportunity to support such a wonderful local charity.”
