Brad's Story


Hello, I’m Brad and I live in the sensory garden at Bradbury Fields where I like to sniff all the beautiful plants with my trunk. My eyesight isn’t very good but I have the best sense of smell in the whole animal kingdom. I enjoy swimming and going on adventures which makes me very hungry. I eat the equivalent of 375 tins of baked beans in grass, plants and fruit every day.

I also love my job raising money for Bradbury Fields who help all of my blind and partially sighted friends. It makes my ears flap with happiness!
