Gromit trail We could all help buy a Gromit
WOULD it be a good idea if every household in Bristol donated £1 (or more if they wished) to buy one of the Gromits when they are auctioned off.
This Gromit could then be given to the Bristol Children's Hospital as a gift from the people of Bristol. They brought so much pleasure to both young and old, perhaps one on display at the hospital may help to bring some cheer to a worried patient and their family.
AM I alone in celebrating that the dubious psychological phenomenon of Gromit-mania is at an end?
I acknowledge that the whole Gromit hypnosis is in aid of the children's hospital's Grand Appeal. However, is it not somewhat disturbing that so much local media coverage over so many months has been taken up with celebratory photographs of Gromit devotees standing alongside their inanimate idols?
