On Friday 80 decorated models of Gromit were placed in various parts of Bristol. These are due to be in place until September when they will be auctioned off to raise money for the local Childrens Hospital. Two have already been broken, one had its tail broken off and the other was ripped from its base and had the neck broken.
These models will give a great deal of pleasure to people in and around Bristol but some idiots think it is "fun" to damage them. Bearing in mind the ultimate aim is to raise money to help sick children, the vandalism has made me very angry (and I am usually quite a placid person).
Those not in the Bristol area can have a look at some of them by going to the website Gromit Unleashed (sorry can't do links!)
