There’s a psychedelic Gromit on the loose in Bristol thanks to our western region sponsoring a colourful statue of the famous Aardman Animations cartoon character.
We’ve supported the painting of ‘Poochadelic’ by artist Lisa Hassell, which has become one of 80 identical figures appearing around the city to help raise funds for the Bristol Children's Hospital charity, Wallace and Gromit’s Grand Appeal
Each Gromit is uniquely decorated and ours has taken up residence at Gloucestershire County Cricket Club’s ground which is being revamped with a new stand and the addition of Living – a stylish mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments.
The 80 spectacular statues will spend the summer in locations around Bristol as part of the Gromit Unleashed Trail. Other designers include Cath Kidston, Sir Quentin Blake and Joanna Lumley – as well Nick Park, the creator of Wallace & Gromit.
Linden Homes Western sales director Sue Scholfield said: “Our Gromit is already creating a stir and it’s fantastic to be part of the exciting Gromit Unleashed initiative which will bring pleasure to so many people as well as raising funds for Bristol’s Children’s Hospital.”
The benefits of buying new make the choice easy. Here are just a few:
