Where we live in Ireland it’s not uncommon to find sheep that have escaped from their field roaming around in search of greener grass. The last thing that I expected to see while here in Bristol was sheep turning up everywhere that I roamed.
The lady outside the local cookery shop explained to me that these are models of ‘Shaun the Sheep’ which have each been decorated by different artists. There are 70 Shauns in Bristol and today marked their launch. They will be auctioned in October and all monies raised will go to Bristol Children’s Hospital. I must say they have created quite a stir of excitement as each one that I have seen has had people eagerly taking snaps.
Indeed the cookery shop was really getting into the spirit of the event and took a photo of me which they were going to put up in the shop window with about a dozen others. The best picture wins a prize…..I shaun’t hold my breath!!
