The ‘It’s Got To Be Bournemouth’ Pride Lion, currently located in the Sovereign Shopping Centre, was set to be auctioned at the Red Ball 2013 in the hope of raising as much money as possible for the Jon Egging Trust.

 

However a new campaign has now been launched to raise funds for the Jon Egging Trust while enabling the Lion to stay in the town. Campaigners include Julian Sandy, the designer, and Carol Childs, who was involved in painting the Pride Lions.

 

The Sovereign Shopping Centre originally purchased the ‘It’s Got To Be Bournemouth’ Lion last year for £4,000 at a local art auction after it became a tribute to Jon Egging, the pilot that sadly passed away during the 2011 Air Festival.

 

If you would like to find our more about how to support the campaign please email julian.sandy@bournemouth.gov.uk
