Charity giraffes paraded through Horsham

Giraffe statues The giraffes will eventually be auctioned

Dozens of giraffes have been paraded through the centre of Horsham in West Sussex.

Each of the 51 decorated statues on the giraffe trail is owned by a Horsham business, and is partnered with a charity.

The 5ft (1.5m) tall giraffes will eventually be auctioned, with the proceeds going to charity.

The statues will be on display at various locations in the town until 9 November.

The parade, led by a bagpiper, began in Swan Walk before travelling through the town.

The event has been organised by the Rotary Club of Horsham.
