Gromit statues to go on display in Bristol to raise money for city's Children's Hospital

An exhibition of Gromit statues is going on display in Bristol again to raise money for the Grand Appeal by the city's Children's Hospital.

The Gromit Unleashed sculptures, which have never been seen in the UK before, will go on display at the Grand Appeal's shop at Cribbs Causeway next week.

The statues had previously been on display at Hong Kong's Elements Mall, where they were raising money for local projects.

This time the exhibition is all in aid of the Grand Appeal which supports Bristol Children's Hospital providing life-saving equipment and accommodation.

The Gromit Unleashed project was held in Bristol back in 2013 by the Grand Appeal, with 80 giant sculptures of Wallace's canine companion designed by a collection of artist, illustrators and celebrities.

The sculptures were later auctioned off, raising £2.3million. Since then, the ‘Gromit Unleashed’ brand has continued to grow, and to date the project has raised more than £5million for Bristol Children’s Hospital.
