Elephants to pack trunks

Have your say

A 30-strong herd of handcrafted elephants will be auctioned off tomorrow to raise money for two city charities.

The colourful paper mache animals will be available to bid for at the LifeCare Centre, on Cheyne Street, from 2pm.

Independent businesses in Stockbridge each decorated an elephant and showcased it in their window during the run-up to the charity auction.

Funds raised will be shared between the Sick Kids Friends Foundation and LifeCare, an Edinburgh charity for the frail, elderly and those with dementia.
