SEVENTY sculptures of the much-loved Bristol-born character Shaun the Sheep will be flocking to Bristol this summer for the eagerly awaited ‘Shaun in the City’ trail - and Badminton School is thrilled to be a sponsor!
Each sculpture has been designed by a different artist, designer or celebrity and the whole flock will be auctioned later this year to raise funds for The Grand Appeal.
The hotly anticipated locations of the 70 Shauns were released last week and Badminton are delighted to now be able to reveal that their Shaun will be located on The Downs, right by the school on Westbury Road. Although the design and artist of Badminton’s Shaun is still tightly under wraps, this exciting announcement has left everyone counting down the days until they can start their summer of tracking down everyone’s favourite sheep.
Headmistress of Badminton School, Mrs Rebecca Tear said: “We are delighted and very proud to be sponsoring ‘Shaun in the City’ in aid of The Grand Appeal, the Bristol Children’s Hospital Charity. Myself and everyone at Badminton are extremely excited for the arrival of our Shaun and couldn’t be happier that a trail that will bring so much fun to everyone’s summer is also raising money for such a worthwhile cause.
"We would love to share the design of our Shaun but we can’t just yet; we’re not being sheepish or a bit woolly, it’s just that this information is still under embargo! We will let you know Baah-dminton’s exclusive design as soon as possible as we know you’ll want to flock to see it!”
