Fundraising : : Harold the giraffe

Each year we look for new ideas for fundraising and increasing awareness for the children’s charity, Coram.  This year I experimented with the idea of ornaments that could be attached to a bikes handlebars for a bit of fun.  It started with a 3D printed prototype of Peppa Pig and in collaboration with Club Peloton quickly moved to ‘Harold the giraffe’, the charity mascot, for Coram. He has been computer modeled and styled from a photograph of the Coram hand puppet, then 3D printed and finally hand painted.  A Garmin mount has been incorporated to provide an easy fix to the handlebars.

The Harolds will join the Cycle to MIPIM riders travelling from London to Cannes along the 1500km journey* to raise money and increase awareness for Coram.  You can follow their progress and say hi on twitter; #haroldontour #cycletoMIPM.

*one name for a group of giraffes.  Others are a tower, a troop, a herd, a kindergarten, a kaleidoscope of giraffes.
