Last autumn, the people of Brighton & Hove and beyond were invited to come together for a baa-rilliant Shaun by the Sea art trail. As a Community Sponsor, Star Property Group have been raising funds and participating in numerous activities and events for Martlets Hospice. 39 talented artists worked for eight weeks to create bold, creative Shaun sculptures.
A Shaun that stood out from the crowd was Star’s Le Mouton De Pays Des Merveilles. Created by the supremely talented Boogaloo Stu, he was a joyful addition to Hove Park, and we organised a series of events around him including a Star Selfie Challenge and Bake Sale.
In addition to the events we hosted, Martlets Hospice also raised awareness and generated funds through a series of exciting activities and gatherings throughout the two-month art trail. Some of these moments were particularly unforgettable. One standout experience was a VIP bus tour of the Shaun sculptures, during which we had the privilege of meeting Shaun creator Peter Lord and Martlets ambassador Fatboy Slim. Another highlight was a competitive team selfie competition, with Star emerging as the victors after an intense two-hour challenge!
The trail culminated in an auction that raised over £385,800 for Martlets Hospice, with our Shaun adding a cool £4000 to the pot. The combined income from the trail now exceeds £750,000, a remarkable achievement that directly benefits an exceptional charity. Congratulations to everyone for their support and generous contributions.
