"The Gromit Unleashed trail had a special meaning for my family, as I'm sure it did for lots of other families, because one of our children is regularly treated by Bristol Childrens Hopsital which the event was in aid of. When I bought my Paint Your Own Gromit I wanted to capture not only how special the event felt to us but also the reason behind it. Courage is inspired by the bravery and spirit of the children who stay or are treated at the hospital and is modelled on how my son looked during his last stay there. Courage wears his nautical themed, open back gown over blue bandaging on his torso and he keeps his paws warm with his fuzzy leopard print slippers. He has a bandage on his right front paw holding his drip tube in place and a plaster on his left paw where a previous drip had been. His orange and gold studded collar and orange plynth represent the floor my son was treated on while the multi colour glittered "Gromit Unleashed" logo represents the colourful theme of the hospital itself. Courage even mirrors my little ones sandy brown hair and unusual half brown/half blue eyes."
