A Wild in Art event in support of Heart of Kent Hospice.

Get Involved

Over the coming months we will be detailing the many different ways that people can get involved in Elmer’s Big Heart of Kent Parade.

We’re currently working closely with our amazing and generous Partners and Sponsors to develop the trail and later in the year we’ll be looking for artists to submit their designs for the large Elmer sculptures. We have just launched our learning programme and will be working with schools across the area, to fundraise for the Hospice and adopt a baby Elmer. The Community Programme will also be launched later this year giving community and village groups, clubs, associations and community partnerships the opportunity to crowdfund or purchase their own Elmer to create a lasting legacy in their communities.

We’re going to need sociable, enthusiastic volunteers to join us as Trailmakers and be part of this unique event. By being an Elmer Trailmaker you will be supporting your local hospice, helping to showcase Maidstone and the surrounding areas and meet lots of interesting people.   If you think you might have what it takes, please visit out Trailmaker page to find out more.
