The Elephant Gang Hits The Big Time!
Jo was delighted to be asked to help with a fabulous event in March organized in aid of the very worthy charity Childhood First.
Funds were raised by an auction of beautiful postcards all originally drawn by a host of artists and illustrators.
Jo was fortunate enough to be able to link her designs with the wonderful Martin Clunes (a great admirer of elephants) and lovely Will Greenwood who kindly signed the pictures before auctioning…
...and so began our little elephant family’s rise to fame!
Congratulations on a fabulous evening and very best wishes to Childhood First.
