In case you hadn’t noticed as you wander around sunny Bristol, or watch the news, there has been an increase in the animal population of Bristol recently! From 6th July to 31st August, 70 b-ewe-tiful giant Shaun the Sheep sculptures, created by artists, designers and celebrities, have been positioned in iconic locations and green spaces across Bristol for the public to enjoy. Shaun in the City have orchestrated this family friendly initiative and the all the information, including where to find them, is on their website.
As a West Country based business, the team at Icescape recognised the importance of supporting the local community & charity by sponsoring our yellow, crystal encrusted Shaun. Bee-dazzled, as she is affectionately known, is located near the food court in The Mall at Cribbs Causeway and has already attracted a flurry of fans taking photos of her sparkly face!
The flocks of Shauns will go to auction later in the year, with funds raised from the 70 Bristol sculptures going to The Grand Appeal, the Bristol Children’s Hospital Charity and funds raised from the 50 London sculptures benefitting Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Charity, supporting children in hospitals across the UK. What a worthwhile cause and something we are incredibly proud to be part of.
Anyway, enough bleating on (pun intended), please share your pictures of bee-dazzled on our twitter page @icescapeltd so we can see her making friends and most importantly, enjoy the last few weeks of the trail …
