Take Your Photo with Shaun the Sheep: Squarebird Opens its Doors to Raise Money for The Grand Appeal
Digital marketing agency, Squarebird, is opening up its foyer to the public from 12 – 5pm on Friday 1st July for a unique photo op with Shaun the Sheep to raise money for Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Appeal in aid of Bristol Children’s Hospital.
Passers-by will have the opportunity to take a photo with the iconic Cath Kidston Paradise Bunch Shaun the Sheep statue at their office on Nailsea High Street, and donate to this important cause. The team will also be celebrating the 25th anniversary of Wrong Trousers Day, donning the most colourful and ridiculous trousers they can find.
The Shaun the Sheep statue was commissioned by Cath Kidston and painted in Liverpool before being moved to Earlham Street in London. The full collection was then auctioned in Bristol for £1,087,900 to raise money for the Grand Appeal. After a four year stay in Norwich, the Shaun finally arrived at the Squarebird studio in 2021 following a further donation where its fundraising journey continues to this day!
The Grand Appeal funds ground-breaking research at Bristol Children’s Hospital to improve the quality of healthcare children receive, now and in the future. The appeal also supports the provision of lifesaving equipment, family accommodation, and vital wellbeing support.
Managing Partner Nick Bird said: “We’re incredibly proud to be raising money for the Grand Appeal; the charity has such a positive impact on the lives of the children in its care. We want to support the Bristol Children’s Hospital and make sure it continues to be at the forefront of children’s healthcare, saving lives in our communities.”
The Squarebird studio will be opening its doors on Friday 1st July from 12pm – 5pm for a unique photo op with Shaun the Sheep. In exchange, they will be asking for donations of whatever can be spared on their dedicated JustGiving page. With the help of the local community, they aim to support the vital work of Bristol Children’s Hospital – and have fun doing it!
