Unicorn trail begins

DOWNEND and Staple Hill will each have a stop on a fundraising charity unicorn trail being unveiled in July.

Unicornfest is raising money for charity Leukaemia Care with a trail of decorated two metre tall statues, which will be on display across the region between July and September before being auctioned off.

In similar style to previous years’ Gromit Unleashed, Shaun the Sheep and Wow! Gorilla trails, people will be encouraged to pick up a map and find the unicorns in an event which will coincide with the school summer holidays.

Downend’s unicorn will be called Gracie after WG Grace and is being sponsored by Downend & Bromley Heath Parish Council in celebration of its 20th anniversary year. It will be placed at the corner of Badminton Road and Cleeve Road outside the former Lloyds Bank building. The Staple Hill unicorn will be outside the Forge & Fern.
