Trevors Foodservice continues charity push

Trevors Foodservice has signed up to support Elmer’s Big Parade Blackpool, which will see David McKee’s popular children’s character – Elmer the Patchwork Elephant – brought to life as 30 uniquely decorated elephant sculptures will be placed throughout the town next spring

Trevors Foodservice has sponsored an Elmer sculpture for the duration of the campaign. The location of Trevors’ Elmer is still to be confirmed, as is the design, which will be created by one of around 100 artists on the shortlist.

A collaboration between Brian House Children’s Hospice, Wild in Art and Andersen Press, the Elmer art trail runs from the 13th April 2024 to the 19th June 2024 and aims to make art accessible to all.

Linking up with local schools and youth organisations, the special Elmer trail also includes a herd of young Elmers that have been designed and decorated by some of the Fylde coast’s most creative children and young people.

Gary Hitchen, Managing Director of Trevors Foodservice, commented: “Our unwavering commitment to our local community resonates throughout the organisation, from management to every corner of our operations. Giving back is deeply ingrained in our family and our business so we’re proud to support this incredible initiative, which will help raise money for a great cause, bring our incredible town to life through art and hopefully provide a big boost to local hospitality businesses.”

Janet Atkins, Corporate Partnerships Manager at Brian House and Trinity Hospice, said: “It’s fantastic to have a company with Trevors’ proud Blackpool heritage and history behind our campaign to make art accessible to all. With their support, we’re confident our art trail will make a huge difference to lives and businesses in Blackpool.

“Every penny raised through Elmer’s Big Parade Blackpool will go towards providing specialist care to local life-limited children, and this incredible event will help to raise awareness of Brian House as the only children’s hospice on the Fylde coast.”
