ROARR! Dinosaur Adventure bought the dragon at an auction organised by the charity Break, after it had been used during the 2015 GoGoDragons interactive art sculpture trail in Norwich. The display brought 84 large dragon sculptures and 120 school dragons to the city and this one appeared at Millennium Plain. It was painted by artist Will Adams, who has gone on to paint murals for ROARR! One side is dark and depicts the extinction of dinosaurs while the other is more colourful and shows them in their prime.
Caroline Allen, EACH Senior Corporate Fundraiser, said: “What a lovely gesture from our friends at ROARR! Dinosaur Adventure. The dragon is a beautiful, eye-catching addition to our hospice grounds and the children loved seeing Dippy through the windows at The Nook. It’s a shame he couldn’t come inside but it still made for a very exciting morning. We were delighted to welcome the team and are grateful for their kind loan of the dragon.”
Michelle Briggs, EACH Service Manager at The Nook, added: “We’re extremely grateful to everyone at ROARR! Dinosaur Adventure. The dragon has taken pride of place within our grounds and looks at home already. It’s a fun, striking addition and I’m sure it will be a real talking point for our families and staff.”
