Director Nick Clews said: “As a Nottingham based company, located in Mapperley, ABSN are thrilled to be getting involved with Hoodwinked 2018. As part of our ten-year anniversary we have adopted Nottinghamshire Hospice as our chosen charity so are proud to be promoting our city’s profile while supporting such a worthwhile cause. Roll on summer 2018!”
Nottinghamshire Hospice is the official charity partner of Hoodwinked and will benefit from the eventual auction of the sculptures from the Hoodwinked trail. It is an independent local charity serving people across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire who have been told that their illness cannot be cured, as well as supporting their families during this difficult time. All services are provided free of charge, but with only a small proportion of funding coming from the NHS they have to raise over £7,000 each and every day.
The unique Hoodwinked trail will run in Nottingham city centre from July to September 2018, with about 30 sculptures sponsored by local businesses. The robin sculptures are a mischievous twist on the tale of the city’s iconic outlaw, Robin Hood, master of disguise. Find out more about sponsorship here.
