We are delighted to announce that the Aardman Art Auction raised an incredible £17,852 for Bristol Children's Hospital Emergency Department!
Bidding was fast and furious in the final hours of the auction on Sunday night, with some lots selling for over £3,000 each!
28 amazing original and limited edition artworks kindly donated by artists at Aardman Studios went on sale to raise funds for Bristol Children’s Hospital charity The Grand Appeal. Hosted on eBay from 10th September for a week, artwork ranged from original character studies of Wallace & Gromit, Morph, and Shaun the Sheep, to full colour paintings and sculptures, to original props from some of Aardman’s biggest productions, including The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists!
All proceeds from the art sale will go towards the Aardriders fundraising total - a group of cyclists from the animation studio, cycling from Land's End to Bristol for the charity later this week.
