Gromit exhibition raises £35,000 for Bristol Children's Hospital

The Gromit's back together in Bristol!

This summer's exhibition of Gromit's has raised £35,000 for Bristol Children's Hospital.

The 'Gromit Unleashed: Homecoming Exhibition' displayed 18 statues of Wallace's companion for the first time since the popular 2013 trail which attracted more than a million visitors to Bristol.

The reunited Gromits were on display at Cribbs Causeway and visitors were encouraged to make a £2 donation.

The most popular Gromit, which sold for £65,000 at auction in 2013, was 'Gromit Lightyear' created by Pixar animations:

Somerset County Cricket Club captain Chris Rogers has announced his retirement after leading his side to victory and potentially a first ever championship title.

Rogers scored back-to-back centuries in the final game of the season against Nottinghamshire, but said after the game, 'that's it from me, I'm getting old'.

Somerset could go on to claim the county championship, but need rivals Middlesex and Yorkshire to draw.
