Wallace & Gromit's Children's Charity is a national charity raising funds to improve the lives of sick children in hospitals and hospices throughout the UK.
We support hundreds of projects throughout the UK providing life-saving medical equipment, free family accommodation, arts, music and play therapy programmes, sensory equipment and facilities and respite care.
Our latest project, Shaun in the City, saw 50 colourful, creative sculptures of Aardman’s award-winning character Shaun the Sheep, designed by artists and household names from the worlds of film, art, animation and fashion, adorn iconic locations and green spaces throughout London.
On Thursday 8th October, the flock went under the hammer in a grand art auction, hosted by acclaimed Sotheby’s auctioneer Tim Wonnacott, raising a fantastic £1,087,900 for Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Charity and The Grand Appeal to support sick children across the UK.
