This Summer prepare for Gromit Unleashed 2, where Nick Park's beloved Gromit will be joined by pal Wallace and arch nemesis Feathers McGraw in an exciting sculpture trail in Bristol! Established in 1995, Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Appeal has raised £50 million to support sick children at Bristol Children’s Hospital and the Special Care Baby Unit at St Michael's Hospital. This includes fundraising for life-saving equipment and ground-breaking medical facilities as well as providing accommodation, and support for families and patients.
This year’s ‘Gromit Unleashed 2’ trail will run from Monday 2nd July until Sunday 2nd September 2018, with 67 giant sculptures, 17 of which have contactless donations incorporated into them. Check out our press release.

Creditcall, with support of Payter, the contactless payment terminal manufacturer, has given a major fundraising boost to Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Appeal, by making it the first arts trail in the world to ‘go contactless’, via the free installation of an unattended contactless donation infrastructure, together with a new online donations portal and a charity of the year fundraising partnership.
17 out of 67 sculptures, which collectively form the ‘Gromit Unleashed 2’ arts trail running throughout Bristol and surrounding area, will be equipped with unattended contactless acceptance terminals enabling visitors to donate quickly and conveniently to the Grand Appeal by choosing from three fixed-value contactless options of £2, £5, or £10.
Being a Trailblazer!
We are one of the proud ‘Trailblazers’, playing a significant role in the trail, alongside Bristol University, Renishaw, and Rolls-Royce who have created some very special sculptures.
If you want to help out why not Donate to Bristol Children’s Hospital.
Everyone here at Creditcall is excited about helping raise money for the Grand Appeal. To help drum up donations, we are planning to attempt to visit all of the trail sculptures in just one day!

Our runners will be split into 2 groups:
The first will be going for a shorter 5km run starting off at Bristol Grammar school and passing the BRI and Harbourside before finishing at Queen square.
While the second group will be taking a slightly longer 10km route, beginning at Clifton Downs and taking in Ashton Court, Aston Gate and the Harbourside, before finishing in Queen Square as well.Donate
Cycle like Gromit

The first group will be beginning in North Bristol, near Parkway station, before eventually finishing in Queen Square.
