After a scorching summer full of fiery fun the GoGoDragons! said goodbye to our fine city by raising £369,500 for children’s charity Break. As an academy we raised over £8500 for Break and we are very proud of the staff and students that supported the campaign.
Eighty-two of the colourful fire-breathers went under the hammer at a charity auction at The Forum.
The event was an exciting grand finale to the GoGoDragons! trail – brought to Norwich by Break and Wild in Art – which had seen the winged warriors win the hearts of people of all ages.
The GoGoDragons! beat the amount raised by their predecessors – the GoGoGorillas! – who in 2013 raised a total of £272,300.
The fundraising superstars which sold for the most money last night included GoGoMosaic, by artist Carolyn Ash, which went for £25,000, Duff, by artist Alex Egan, which raised £20,500 and Luda, by Norfolk’s “Mini Monet” Kieron Williamson, which sold for £20,000.
