The LEGO Group is contributing a 30,000 brick sculpture of beloved character Gromit to help raise money for Bristol Children’s Hospital.
Gromit Unleashed 2 has been organised by the Grand Appeal to raise money for Bristol Children’s Hospital. The LEGO Group has decided to get involved by constructing a giant model of Gromit to contribute to the art trail. It has been dubbed “Cracking Build Gromit!”
“Wallace and Gromit will always be a favourite of mine, so I am over the moon we have been given the opportunity to create our very own brick-built LEGO Gromit for The Grand Appeal,” Matthew Ashton, Vice President of Design, told Bristol Live.
In addition to the LEGO Group, Paramount Pictures, Pixar Animation Studios and Illumination are all getting involved too. Each company will be putting a different twist on a classic Aardman Animation character.
In previous years, Gromit Unleashed and Shaun in the City raised over £6 million for Bristol Children’s Hospital. Funds raised this year will be supporting the same cause.
