With ‘Shaun in the City’ fever sweeping through Bristol, pupils from Wheatfield Primary School in Bradley Stoke have contributed to a ‘mini-Shaun trail’ that is taking place within the John Lewis store at The Mall, Cribbs Causeway.
Partners (staff) and local schools were asked to get involved and knit mini-Shauns that would later form part of the trail. Decorated by pupils to represent their school, and customers’ children to represent various departments in store, the 21 Shauns have been strategically hidden throughout the branch, waiting to be discovered.
The hunt will last until 31st August and shoppers can take part by making a minimum donation of £1 at the haberdashery department on the second floor. All entries will be put into a prize draw to win a £100 gift card to spend in John Lewis.
All money raised from the hunt will be donated to The Grand Appeal, which supports the Bristol Children’s Hospital.
The Mall at Cribbs Causeway is home to three fantastic sculptures in the main Shaun in the City trail: Fab-ewe-lous by Bristol artist Carys Ink, Shrek Shaun by DreamWorks and Bee-dazzled! by Sunny Warrington.
Head of branch Lucy Ramsyer said:
“This has been a fantastic opportunity for local schools, Partners and our customers’ children to get involved from the outset of this hunt. I have been really impressed with the quality of the knitted Shauns and their decorations. With all the excitement around Shaun in the City at The Mall, Cribbs Causeway, we are really excited to be involved and hope, along with other activities planned, to raise a significant amount of money to go towards this very worthy cause.”
