Fifty giant snails will soon be slithering their way around Brighton and Hove for a good cause. The animals are depicted in sculptures which will feature in an art trail around the city in aid of a local charity.
The project has been inspired by the positive response to a similar snowdogs campaign which captured the hearts and imaginations of artists, residents and businesses alike.
The Snailspace project which goes on display in September will raise funds for the Martlets Hospice in Hove. The interviewees in Jenna Verdicchio's report are Sally Brighton, from the Martlets Hospice' and Martin Middleton, also known as 'Cassette Lord'.
