Julie Walters Visits West Sussex to Support Elephantastic Trail!

Julie Walters is set to visit the town of Horsham in West Sussex to help promote the Elephantastic Trail, a fundraiser benefiting Born Free, a wildlife charity, and several other charitable causes.

The Elephantastic Trail, organized by the town’s Rotary Club, is comprised of dozens of decorated elephants set up around town in three different trails. Until August 31, visitors will be able to pay £1 to enter the trails and view the elephants. The lovely statues are also being auctioned off for charity!

As patron of the Samaritans of Horsham and Crawley, Julie Walters will visit the town on Wednesday, August 19, to promote the event and sign several of the statues. Sue Jago, the charity director, said of Walters’s visit,

We are very grateful to Horsham Publications and Ritchie Phillips for each supplying an elephant for us and to Collyer’s art students for decorating them so beautifully. The icing on the cake is to have Julie Walters signing them in person. Needless to say, we are thrilled. We were lucky enough to be part of the giraffe trail two years ago, which was hugely successful, but I think Elephantastic has easily surpassed it.

If you live near Horsham, the Elephantastic Trail sounds like a fun and worthy cause to visit – especially if you can make it on August 19!
