This evening, 120 Shaun the Sheep sculptures are going under the hammer in an exciting auction to raise funds for children's hospitals across the UK, and you can join in.

Illustrated by artists, designers and celebrities – including Great British Bake Off illustrator Tom Hovey, Bagpuss creator Peter Firmin and even the Hello Kitty team – each model of animation studio Aardman's popular character is ewe-nique in its design.
Changing children's lives
Earlier this year, the sculptures appeared in two charity Shaun in the City (opens in new tab) arts trails across Bristol and London, organised by Wallace & Gromit's Children's Foundation, a national charity raising funds to improve the lives of sick children in hospitals and hospices throughout the UK.
Money raised from the 50 sculptures that appeared on the Bristol trail will benefit Bristol Children's Hospital Charity Grand Appeal, while funds raised from those on the London trail will benefit Wallace & Gromit's Children's Charity.
Last year, a staggering £2.3m was raised during a similar auction of Gromit Unleashed sculptures (opens in new tab).
Tune into the nail-biting auction at The Mall, Bristol, this evening at 6:45pm.
