Womble Bond Dickinson to support Hospice's Art Trail for second time

Womble Bond Dickinson supports Elmer's Great North Parade

Following the success of the 2016 Great North Snowdog trail, with Womble Bond Dickinson (WBD) raising over £20,000, the firm is proud to continue its support for St Oswald's Hospice by being an early supporter of this year's Elmer’s Great North Parade.

St Oswald's Hospice provides specialist care for North East adults, young people and children with incurable conditions with a target to raise £7.5m every year. In 2016, The Great North Snowdogs trail had dozens of sculptures from the animated film The Snowman and the Snowdog scattered across the North East which made up a free public art trail.

Elmer's Great North Parade will feature over 70 individually designed elephants based on the much loved children's character, Elmer the Patchwork Elephant, at numerous locations across the North East. The public will be able to track down the Elmers for eleven weeks from August to November. As part of their support, WBD is organising a quiz to be held at The Biscuit Factory in October to raise valuable funds for the Hospice.

"Following the huge success of the Great North Snowdogs, I am delighted that we are able to support the Hospice once again this time with Elmer’s Great North Parade."

Kevin Robertson, Head of Newcastle Office
