The eagerly-anticipated charity sculpture trail will feature 70 individually-designed sculptures of Aardman’s Shaun the Sheep. The sculptures will be installed in iconic locations and green spaces all across Bristol from 6th July until 31st August, including Clifton Suspension Bridge, Bristol Temple Meads Station, Ashton Gate Stadium, the Botanic Garden and Horfield Common, before being auctioned to raise funds for Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Appeal, the Bristol Children’s Hospital charity.
The sculptures are due to arrive on Monday 6th July and Dunkley’s Shaun can be found at the baa-rilliant Botanic Garden in Clifton for the duration of the trail. Dunkley’s have organised several events at the Botanic Garden, including a summer drinks party on Wednesday 8th July and a Shaun-themed fun day on Tuesday 14th July with Begbrook Primary School.
Director Mike Dunkley said:
“We are extremely excited to be sponsors of the Shaun in the City trail. It’s a great way to raise awareness of children’s hospitals, raise money and have fun! Our involvement in Gromit Unleashed in 2013 was a huge success – it really helped bring staff, clients and the local community together – and I have no doubt that this trail will do the same!”
