The Shaun in the City auction was a cracking success!
We are thrilled at the success of the Shaun in the City charity auction, which took place at the Pavilion at The Mall at Cribbs Causeway last night and raised an incredible £1,087,900 for Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Charity and The Grand Appeal!
Hosted by acclaimed Sotheby’s auctioneer Tim Wonnacott, the auction saw a packed room of excited bidders and invited guests, with bids also taken online and a live online stream for fans worldwide to tune in and watch all the action unfold.
London highlights included Globetrotter by Sarah Matthews, which raised the highest amount, selling for £28,000 after an intense bidding war! Patriotic Rule Brittania raised £15,000 for our charity, whilst Tim Sutcliffe's retro Robo-Shaun and Counting Sheep by Gerald Scarfe each raised a cracking £12,000!
All funds raised from the 50 sculptures that featured on the Shaun in the City London trail in spring will help us provide life-saving medical equipment, free family accommodation, arts, music and play therapy programmes and sensory equipment and facilities for children in hospitals across the UK.
We can’t thank the fantastic bidders enough for helping to raise this life-changing amount.
Whether you purchased a sculpture at auction or a figurine in our shop, downloaded our app or sponsored a fundraiser, thank you for your support. Every single penny raised is going to make a truly life-changing difference to sick children and their families across the UK.
