Elmer Elephant Trail Opening Event for Laura Fergusson Brain Injury Trust

Nov 25, 2023 | Active Richmond, Educate Richmond, Healthy Richmond, Heritage Richmond, RR&BA

David, Hayley and Rachel from RRBA were honoured to attend Elmer’s Ōtautahi Elephant Trail opening Thursday night and see all of the amazing elephant designs lined up, created by local artists!!!

Today is the opening day for this AMAZING trail across the city, to raise funds for Laura Fergusson Brain Injury Trust, who will move into our area once enough funds are raised for their new facilities on North Parade (on the former Marian College site).

We were excited to see our local school Pareawa Banks Avenue School’s gorgeous HEART elephant, and also local Jen McBride’s from Jn Creative‘s “knit” elephant.

Well-done and see if you can spot these elephants around Christchurch in the coming weekends. Trail is live from 25 November till 18 February.
