Throughout summer 2016, Sheffield’s parks and open spaces were brought to life with one of the biggest public art events the city has ever seen. Never before has Sheffield been alive with such colour, vibrancy and trunks – creating a platform for people of all ages to come together and enjoy something very special.

It captured the imagination of thousands of residents and visitors who’ve been out exploring the trail and rediscovering all that our amazing city has to offer. Our social media feeds were awash with thousands of elephant selfies!

We’d like to say a huge thank you to The Children’s Hospital Charity and Wild in Art for bringing this event to Sheffield, for the creativity of the artists and schools and the generosity of our sponsors. Your support has been invaluable.

The trail has been tremendous fun and it was all about raising money for the patients and families that depend on Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

The Herd of Sheffield Auction funded a life-saving piece of equipment – a Multipurpose Fluoroscopy System, which will provide children with the best chance of a full and healthy life.
