Godfrey The Giraffe

By Susan Uttley

I was fortunate to win a giraffe - that is, for naming him. He was born on Good Friday and the name I chose was Godfrey (short for Good Friday). I had the experience of attending the Zoo on his naming day, had photos taken with him. I believe he went to Bristol Zoo and a very detailed route had to be implemented so that he was able to get 'under' all the bridges on route.
