The Grand appeal – 2 July to 2 September 2018
Etex Building Performance are delighted to be sponsoring one of Nick Park’s Academy Award®-winning Gromit characters in this year’s Gromit Unleashed 2 trail, organised by Bristol Children’s Hospital Charity, The Grand Appeal, in partnership with Aardman Animations.
Following on from our sponsorship of the Blossom Gromit sculpture during the first Gromit Unleashed trail in 2013, and the King Arthur of Lambalot Shaun the Sheep sculpture during the Shaun in the City trail in 2015, this year we are proud sponsors of Wild at Heart Gromit, located at Ashton Court.

Wild at Heart Gromit has been designed and painted by artist Liza Donoghue and illustrates 26 endangered animals.
The inspiration behind Wild at Heart is to raise awareness to the plight of endangered animals across the globe.

In conjunction with Bristol City Council we are running a summer event at Ashton Court to help raise money for The Grand Appeal.
The ‘Rose Garden Safari’ is designed to be educational for both children and their parents and we hope it will also encourage people to explore Ashton Court’s beautiful grounds. Seventeen illustrations from the Gromit design are being hidden in the Alan Barber Rose Garden at Ashton Court. The Safari will be open to the public from Friday 20th July until Sunday 2nd September.
Children’s TV presenter Andy Day officially opened the event on Friday 20th July. It was great to see so many visitors exploring the garden and donating to the Grand Appeal.
Are you a little Explorer?
If so, why not pick up your ‘Rose Garden Safari’ worksheet and sticker from the Courtyard Cafe today to find the animals who have escaped from Gromit.
Each worksheet is a suggested minimum donation of 50p with all proceeds going to the Grand Appeal.
