Established in 1995, Wallace & Gromits Grand appeal has raised over £50 million. Aardman animations have been continually generous in allowing the charity to use the Award-winning Characters.

The money raised has been used by Bristol Children’s Hospital among other things to fund pioneering life-saving equipment, including a 3D printing service used on the Cardiac ward that will revolutionise operations and help patients and parents better understand even the most complex cardiac surgeries, eventually the service will have the capability to ‘bio-print’ using stem cells dramatically decreasing the amount of operations a young patient needs.
