Cracking News Gromit…

Throughout the summer, 80 iconic sculptures created by artists, using the Oscar-award-winning Aardman Animations character Gromit, have adorned the streets of Bristol in a public art trail. These sculptures went to auction on Thursday 3rd October 2013. All funds raised will benefit Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Appeal, to support sick children and their families at Bristol Children’s Hospital.


The Gromit Unleashed auction was hosted by Sotheby’s auctioneer and TV antiques presenter Tim Wonnacott, who described it as “the premier charity auction of the year”.
Oakham Treasures were lucky enough to secure the bids on Creature Comforts and Mandrills Best Friend.
Owner Keith Sherrell was delighted to be able to contribute to such a worthy and local cause.
