Thank you to the friends of the herd

Flora giraffe sculpture in Edinburgh

With just over a week to go until the herd takes to the streets, we would like to take the time to thank everyone who has helped bring Edinburgh’s tall trail to life.  

Thank you to our presenting partner The Glenmorangie Company, supporting partners CityFibre and Essential Edinburgh, and the 38 official and sculpture sponsors. 

There is a list as long as a giraffe with the individuals and organisations that have supported Giraffe About Town. We would like to give a special shout-out to some friends of the herd…
