New logistics partner for the great Waddle of Worcester 

Worcester Editorial 11th Jun, 2024   0

A FREIGHT and construction company have become the logistics partner for the great Waddle of Worcester.

Britannia Dynamic Logistics and AR Demolition will make sure the 80 feathered friends are transported to and from their nesting points on the five mile art trail.

Phil Schiaffino, managing director for Britannia Dynamic Logistics, said: “Based at Hindlip, we’re just down the road from the hospice and it’s a charity which is close to our hearts.

“While our expertise lies in managing imports and exports globally, transporting penguins is definitely a first for the team.

“We’ll be ensuring the hospice huddle is well cared for on its travels, so the penguins look their best at auction, and raise valuable funds to support St Richard’s care across Worcestershire.”


Sara Matthews, business development manager for St Richard’s Hospice, said: “We know with these brrr-illiant companies on board our hospice huddle is in safe hands.

“With sculpture painting now complete, we’re very excited for the countdown to the great Waddle of Worcester on 22 July.

“While all penguins have now been adopted there are other ways local businesses can get involved to avoid missing out on what’s going to be another spectacular celebration of community, art and culture.”

The great Waddle of Worcester is supported by Presenting Partners; Crowngate, DRPG, Worcester City Council and Worcestershire Ambassadors, Community and Education Partner; Worcester BID and Media Partners; the Worcester News and BBC Hereford & Worcester.
