Last Thursday we welcomed our Gromit sculpture, Cupid to Dunkley’s with a wine and cheese evening, in support of The Grand Appeal, the Bristol Children’s Hospital Charity.
Cupid, the paisley printed, valentine inspired Gromit sculpture is on display outside our office for the duration of the Summer.
Our wine and cheese inspired launch was held outside in the glorious British sunshine to make sure Cupid was the star of the show!
Alongside Cupid, the evening was filled with over 120 guests, 3 Shaun in the City sculptures (Queenie, King Arthur and the Beafeater), Gromberry (from the initial Gromit Unleashed trail) and Mr Sprinkles (Dunkley’s hand painted Gorilla sculpture from the Wow Gorilla trail). As you can imagine it was quite a show!
Amongst the guests were clients, friends, professional contacts as well as the Mayor of Bradley Stoke, Ben Randles and Cupid’s artist, Blossom and Brush.
The evening was a celebration of our involvement with the trail as well as our involvement in the local community. Ben Randles, the Bradley Stoke Mayor officially opened our Gromit sculpture with an official ribbon cutting.
Local businesses also showed their involvement to the trail by providing guests with prizes to be won. The 5 prizes were kindly donated by Young Bristol, Royal Raj, Romy’s Kitchen, Double Tree by Hilton and Café Gusto.
The event was a massive success filled with celebration, laughter and a lot of cheese (of course!).
It is true to say that everyone has fallen in love with Cupid!
“Thank you, Nicole, all the Dunkleys owners and staff for the excellent hospitality provided last Thursday evening at the Gromit Unleashed event held outside your offices. It was a very enjoyable event and it was impressive to see all the other Gromit’s and gorillas from Dunkley clients and contacts all collected together in one place. Thank you so much for the invitation and well done for organising such a splendid occasion.” Tony Hughes, Solicitor and Commercial Mediator at Hughes Enterprise Law Practice
