Wallace and Gromit watercolour stars at Holmeswood fundraising event
by David Simister

THE latest creation from the man who brought you Wallace and Gromit was one of the stars at a coffee morning in West Lancashire last weekend.

An original watercolour of the loveable TV duo, which was created by Lancashire animator Nick Park himself and is being auctioned off to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support, made a prominent appearance at a fundraising coffee morning hosted by Homestead Farm, in Holmeswood, last Saturday (September 29).

The animator, who has come up with not only Wallace and Gromit's TV and film adventures but also the likes of Creature Comfort, Chicken Run and Shaun the Sheep, offered to lend his help to the restaurant due to members of his family being regular visitors to the eatery.

To find out more Homestead Farm go to or call 01704 821358.
