Marshall sold for £16,500!


Auction success for Gromit Unleashed 2

After spending the summer on the banks of Chew Valley Lake, Marshall, the Gromit sculpture I painted for this summer’s art trail, went up for auction on Wednesday 3 October at the stunning British Aerospace Concorde Museum in Filton, Bristol.

A truly fabulous night was had by all and Marshall was eventually sold off to the highest bidder when the auctioneer’s hammer finally came down at £16,500!

All 66 of the larger than life Wallace, Gromit and Feathers McGraw sculptures sold and fetched an unbelievable total of £1,321,500 on the night!

That means that together with contactless donations, the Gromit Unleashed 2 trail app, sculpture raffle, The Greatest Dog Show on Earth 2 exhibition as well as fundraising and private donations, the amazing total now stands at an astonishing £1,621,500.00!

Every penny raised at auction and throughout the Gromit Unleashed 2 trail will go toward helping the patients and families cared for Bristol Children’s Hospital and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at St Michael’s Hospital.

What a summer! I've felt privileged to have been involved in such a great fundraising event.
