A-Gas is proud to be one of the sponsors of this year’s Shaun in the City trail in Bristol which will feature 70 large sculptures of characters from Aardmann Animations.
Each of the five-foot sculptures has been individually designed by a flock of artists and famous faces including Wallace and Gromit and Shaun the Sheep creator Nick Park. The sculptures will be grazing in iconic locations and tourist destinations around Bristol from July 6 to the end of August.
After the trail, all the sculptures will be auctioned to raise money for Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Appeal, the Bristol Children’s Hospital Charity. The A-Gas sculpture, Buttercup, has been designed by Bristol-based artist Vivi Cuevas. Buttercup can be spotted at Ashton Court, near the A-Gas head offices in Portbury.
A-Gas Group Marketing Executive Hayley Russell said, “The Grand Appeal is close to our hearts at A-Gas and we are delighted to be a part of Shaun in the City. Staff, family and friends are being asked to enter a competition to design their own Shaun the Sheep who I am sure many will remember from the film and television series. In addition, we have lots of fundraising activities planned to raise money for The Grand Appeal.”
A-Gas Americas is the new name in the market following the merger of sister companies Coolgas, RemTec, CIJSA and A-Gas Performance Chemicals. The newly named company will operate from the companies’ existing locations within the group in Ohio, Texas, Pennsylvania and Mexico.
