There isn’t anything unusual about spotting spring lambs in Northumberland in April. But visitors to The Alnwick Garden recently might have been surprised to see a special guest enjoying the famous cherry blossom tree displays.

Shaun the Sheep took a trip north to visit trail sponsors The Alnwick Garden and timed it perfectly, arriving just as the blossom trees were in full bloom

The Alnwick Garden are the latest sponsor to join the Shaun on the Tyne flock and we are blooming delighted to have their support!

Ian McAllister Strategic Head of Marketing and Communications, said:

“We are thrilled to be involved with Shaun on the Tyne. As soon as we saw there was a possibility to sponsor our very own Shaun, we leapt at the opportunity and so far, it has been joy after joy! St Oswald’s Hospice is an excellent organisation and we have members of staff who have personally benefitted from the hard work of the care team. Shaun is a fun and recognisable character, and we thought his cheeky charm would be perfect to represent The Alnwick Garden on this unique trail!”

Welcome to The Alnwick Garden, it’s a pleasure to have you in our flock.
