Introducing ‘Raja’, the office elephant

Introducing ‘Raja’, the office elephant

This summer we have been running an elephant naming and colouring in competition, and the winners have now been voted for by all of the office team.

The winning name is 'Raja', chosen by seven year old Matthew Brooks. We had hundreds of entries for the colouring in competition, and the standard was so high that in the end we voted on two joint winners, and also a second prize. Joint 1st prize - Susie York and Izzy Jenkin. 2nd prize - Emma Stables

Raja the wooden elephant has travelled to our office from India, and is now standing proudly in our foyer, ready to greet visitors, and passers-by. Matthew and Susie came in to the office this week to meet Raja and have their photo taken for the local newspaper. They have now received their prizes - a years' adoption of an asian elephant from the WWF. You can read the newspaper article online here.
