New gorillas appear by Clifton Suspension Bridge
TWO painted gorilla sculptures have appeared next to the road at the top of Sion Hill in Clifton.
Jackorilla, a Union Jack patterned sculpture, was designed by Clifton Traders' Association chairman Tony Miles and took 90 hours to complete.
Juborilla, a red patterned sculpture, was created by Alison Bracey of Clifton Village-based Bracey Interiors to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee year.
The sculptures were created to promote the £2 million appeal launched by The Friends of Bristol Haematology and Oncology Centre for a new radiotherapy machine, which would keep Bristol at the forefront of cancer treatment. They will be auctioned at the end of October with all proceeds going towards the appeal.
