It’s time to say goodbye to this towering sculpture trail as our herd of over 90 giraffe sculptures, which have been standing tall on the streets of Cambridge, head off to pastures new!

And what a journey it’s been!

These gentle giants not only turned heads but also attracted over 75,000 people to come and gaze up at their amazing designs.

Thanks to your incredible support, our auction raised a staggering £142,600 for Break, ensuring we can stand tall for young people who have faced a challenging start in life, and help them reach new heights.

We want to extend a huge thank you to everyone who made this possible giraffe-tastic adventure possible. To the talented artists who brought our giraffes to life, the generous businesses who sponsored them, the schools and groups who created their very own Mini Gs, and the wonderful community who showed their support by visiting, donating, and spreading the word – we couldn’t have done it without you!

Even though our giraffes are off to their new homes, their impact will be felt for years to come. Thanks to your support, Break can continue to help young care leavers stand tall!
