Wilson James supporting Havens Hospice with Herd in the City

14th July 2023

The Herd in the City Art Trail is officially open in Essex and Wilson James is delighted to contribute to this year’s programme.

For 2023, 46 large elephant sculptures and 72 baby elephants—each of them wholly unique—have been positioned around South-end-on-Sea, Leigh-on-Sea and Shoeburyness. Each large elephant is sponsored by a business and can be digitally “tagged” by visitors.

Wilson James is a long-time supporter of Havens Hopsice and this is our second time participating in public art events in aid of the organisation. Visitors to our head office may have met Rocky, the friendly hare greeting guests at the office door, who was part of the 2021 campaign Hares About Town.

This year our companion pachyderm is Don’t Feed the Birds, who you can meet along with its friends here.

If you are a frequent visitor to our head office, do make sure stop by to visit our elephant! Each scan of its unique raises donations for Havens Hospice, in advance of a final charity auction in September.
