The Horsham District is located on the edge of the South Downs National Park and covers an area of 205 square miles.

Bringing the herds to Horsham for an ‘Elephantastic’ spectacular

Horsham Rotary Club is inviting local businesses to adopt and decorate a model elephant as part of its new campaign.

The Elephant Trail will help raise vital funds for a variety of local charities, including Horsham-based Born Free Foundation’s new appeal to fund and build Europe's first elephant sanctuary in Tuscany. The event will also promote Horsham Town and the surrounding area throughout the summer holidays, as well as the local art scene and its fantastic artistic talent.

Working with Horsham District Council and Horsham Unlimited, the Rotary Club are set to supply 150 plain elephant sculptures, which go on sale this week at prices ranging from £75 to £200 depending on size, to businesses and other organisations within a ten mile radius of Horsham town centre.

Similar to Horsham’s giraffe initiative in 2013, once sponsors and associated charities have put their own creative stamp on the elephants, they will form a colourful art trail in and around the town centre for local residents and Horsham visitors to follow.

The elephants can be decorated by sponsoring organisation and charities in-house or outsourced to local artists or schools and community groups.

For more details about how to purchase an elephant or information regarding the elephant safari trails and charities, please email: Charities operating in the Horsham area who wish to participate in the event and artists who are prepared to use their talents to paint an elephant should also register with Horsham Rotary Club before the end of April.
