Nine-year-old Izabella Houston-Carter is one of the hoppiest GoGoHares fans around after being among the first people to complete their sticker book celebrating the colourful characters.
The youngster, who lives in Lower Hellesdon, has been collecting the 233 stickers ever since our GoGoHares sticker album was launched in June, and today she was excited to visit the EDP and Evening News’ Norwich office to pick up the final one she needed - number 98.
After sticking in the sticker of City College Norwich’s leveret, The Furtographer, Izabella said she was really excited to have finished the album.
“It’s really satisfying sticking all the stickers in the book and it’s nice to see all the different hares,” said Izabella, who goes to St Francis of Assisi Catholic Primary School.
She said she had been especially excited when she opened one of her sticker packets to find the sticker for her school’s hare which is called Leafy Leveret.
“I really like the GoGoHares because they are all so different,” she added.
“Hares are my fourth favourite animal because they are quick like me!
“My favourite animal is a horse, my second favourite is a seahorse, and my third favourite is a fox.”
As well as completing the album, Izabella has also visited almost all of the GoGoHares on the three different sculpture trails that have been brought to Norwich and Norfolk by children’s charity Break and Wild in Art.
She said she had three favourite GoGoHares: “I like Sky because it’s got lots of my favourite colours on it, Narni-Hare because The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe is one of my favourite films, and Foxy’s Tale because it looks cheeky and it has a story on it which I can read.”
The EDP and Norwich Evening News teamed up with Break and East of England Co-op to create the 60-page GoGoHares sticker book which features all the hares on the three different trails.
There are 50 GoGoHares to find on the city trail through Norwich as well as 18 moongazer hares dotted around Norfolk on the county trail. More than 160 leveret sculptures are also forming a trail through Norwich.
The city and county trails run until September 8 and the GoGoCreate leveret trail runs until September 2.
