Colin Ludwell Cars Charity Support

Colin Ludwell Cars are proud to have supported and continue to support the following charities.

Patch

Patch was purchased back in 2013 by Colin Ludwell cars, in the Gromit unleashed trail. Over the summer of 2013, 80 giant Gromit sculptures were placed around Bristol, before being auctioned off to raise money for the Bristol Children’s Hospital. A staggering £2.8 Million was raised by the end of the night, with patch going for an outstanding £36,000! Patch is now in his permanent home at our showroom in Kingswood, Bristol.

Shaun the sheep on the waterfront

In the summer of 2015, 120 Shaun The Sheep statues were placed across Bristol and London, in the ‘Shaun in the city’ trail. Over £1 Million was raised when they were auctioned off for the Bristol Children’ Hospital. We purchased Shaun ‘on the water front’ for an incredible £8000. Shaun now takes pride of place in our state of the art showroom.

Gromjet

2018 saw the Gromit unleashed 2 trail return to Bristol. Over the summer, 67 incredible sculptures were placed around Bristol, for all to enjoy. On October 3rd 2018, all 67 sculptures were auctioned off, to once again raise money for the Bristol Children’s Hospital. Gromjet was designed and engineered by Rolls Royce. One of only 3 interactive sculptures on the trail, this incredible statue can hover one metre off the ground and comes with its own sound effect control panel. Gromjet was bought by us for an outstanding £25,000. Check out the video Above to see Gromjet in action

Giggles

Giggles is the 2nd Gromit in our showroom, from the gromit unleashed 2 trail. This Happy Jokster was designed and painted by Bristol illustrator Emily Golden. Sponsered and shown off by the Grand pier, in Weston Supermare. This Gromit was a crowd favourite for all, over the summer.

Colin Ludwell Cars have supported Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Appeal to raise money for the Bristol Children’s Hosptial since its launch early 2013, the highlight of last year was it’s Gromit Unleashed Gromit Trail, where 80 plus Gromits were designed by various celebrities and artists, these were then spread across Bristol and London for the public to search for during the summer holidays in 2013.

These Gromits were later auctioned off to raise money for the Bristol Children’s Hospital. CLC made the first purchase of ‘Patch’ at the auction resulting in a huge £36,000.00 donation to the charity.

Patch was designed and painted by Bristol artist Emily Golden, Patch’s new home now is at our showroom in Kingswood, Bristol. Please feel free to come and have your picture taken with him as we continue our support for this excellent charity.
