The Magic of Gromit Unleashed 2!

Trail News

After a summer full of trail fun we’re looking back at some of the most amazing stories to have come from Gromit Unleashed 2.

One such story is that of young Ben, who since the age of two has suffered from a condition called idiopathic foot syndrome. After years of various treatments Ben eventually underwent a bilateral calf release operation earlier this year. This operation attempted to stretch the tendons in his legs and now, at the age of eight, Ben is able to walk flat footed!

Considering Ben’s lengthy hospital journey we were delighted to hear that he along with mum Eve and dad Matt were able to get out on the trail and visit some of our smashing Gromit Unleashed 2 sculptures! Ben’s story, like many others, proves just how special the trail can be for patients who spend a vast amount of time in hospital by providing them with a unique opportunity to get out and explore beautiful Bristol.

We hope Ben and his family thoroughly enjoyed Gromit Unleashed 2 and that his continued recovery is going well!
