A LUCKY family has won the trip of a lifetime thanks to Colchester Zoo’s Stand Tall campaign.
The campaign, which is part of the Maldon Road zoo’s 50th anniversary celebrations, saw 30 2.5m giraffe figurines dotted across the borough.
Each was designed by north Essex artists.
During the 12-week programme, members of the public were tasked with clocking off each of the giraffes using the Stand Tall app.
Winner Joanne Seakins, will be jetting off to Africa next summer with her eight-year-old daughter Sophie, 17, and partner Ian.
She said: “We couldn’t believe it when we heard I’d won.
“We’ve never had a holiday like this before so we’re all really excited.”
Joanne, who lives in Hornchurch, added: “We all loved the Stand Tall giraffes and can’t wait to see the real ones in the wild next summer.”
