Shaun Le Sheep, designed by Sara Pope and sponsored by Plus Accounting which was sadly removed from the trail two weeks ago for repairs. It is currently undergoing an incredible transformation to make it auction-ready.
Sadly the sculpture will not return to the trail, which is due to end on 5th November. This is so there is enough time to create the newly improved design.
Shaun Le Sheep will now be available to view again at the Farewell Event, which due to exceptional demand is taking place in the main foyer of The Brighton Centre from 24-26 November.
Claire Kidd, Head of Fundraising at Martlets said:
“We want to thank everyone who has come forward to support us over the last few weeks after we received significant damage to several of our sculptures. Although it is disappointing, people have come through with kind donations and offers of support.
“At Martlets we care for people living through some of the toughest of times. But no matter how tough, Martlets will be there to support our community in Brighton & Hove, the Deans and the Havens. It’s these values that we’ve taken to Shaun Le Sheep, and we can’t wait to reveal more in the weeks to come. We’re excited for people to see it and potential bid on it at our auction on 27 November.”
Victoria King, Marketing Manager at Plus Accounting added:
“As the proud sponsor of Shaun Le Sheep, we were saddened by the need for repairs, but we’ve been genuinely touched by the outpouring of support from our community. Martlets’ commitment to their cause is an inspiration to us all. We’re eager to see Shaun Le Sheep return in all its glory at the Farewell Event, and we’re excited to be part of this wonderful journey, together with our baa-rilliant artist Sara Pope.”
