Today the lions are being moved from the Pride in Bournemouth trail and returning to the lion’s den to be restored, if necessary, ready for the auction on Sunday 18 September. All proceeds from the auction will go to the charities Julia’s House and the Born Free Foundation. It will be a very interesting evening as we find out where the lions’ new homes will be and how much they each raise.
Continuing the safari we are visiting lions 22, 23, 24, 25, 26 and 27 on the trail map.
Lion number 26 is the delicious Sublion. Created by Helen Hiett and Amy Nixon, Sublion is sponsored by the Wallisdown Road Subway.
Our final lion today is Leatherbound, lion number 27. Leatherbound’s artist is Lisa Berkshire and this design is sponsored by Poppies Art Workshops. Leatherbound has spent the summer in Bournemouth’s Triange.
