Brighton businesses support the Shaun by the Sea arts trail.

COMPANIES across the city are keen to participate in the latest street art installation to raise money for a hospice.

The Shaun by the Sea trail will feature approximately 40 statues of the popular children’s character, which will be individually designed and placed at various locations around town.

Two previous installations featuring Snowdogs and Snails together raised £600,000 for charity.

Among the companies supporting the upcoming trail in favor of the Martlets is Italian restaurant Donatello, whose chef Mikele Addis says he is “proud to sponsor”.

He said: “You constantly provide such a fun and exciting addition to the colorful streets of Brighton whilst supporting such a wonderful charity.

“We are very much looking forward to seeing our new facility on site soon.”

A series of artists are commissioned to customize a Shaun sculpture to create a flock of diverse and colorful sheep.

DJ Fatboy Slim is among those sponsoring one of the Shaun sculptures which will be on display across Brighton and Hove‘Regency Shaun’ – one of around 40 sculptures set to take to the streets of Brighton and Hove next year

The photo company Vervate has also announced that it will take part in the art installation.

A spokeswoman said: “Martlets are such an important and valued local institution and we have been privileged to support them for many years.

“We have experienced first-hand the immense value of the life-affirming care they provide to residents of Brighton and Hove.

“Having been photo partners on the previous two sculpture trails, we are delighted to be part of the team for this new one.”

Hove DJ Norman Cook, aka Fatboy Slim, has also pledged to sponsor a sculpture and has invited other local businesses to do the same.

He said: “To be part of such a creative and inspiring community project supporting a local charity we couldn’t do without is absolutely priceless.”

The installation is expected to take place from September to November next year, with the sculptures at the end of the trail being auctioned off to raise money for the martlets.

The snails fetched more than £230,000 for the Martlets in a 2018 auction of the 50 sculptures. Brighton businesses support the Shaun by the Sea arts trail.
