For the first time a GoGo sculpture has been won by a member of the public in a raffle draw.

Commissioned to celebrate 250 years of the circus, Pablo the hare, spent his summer in Intu Chapelfield and has become the first and only sculpture to be won in a public raffle.

Proving popular with members of the public, tickets sales for Pablo reached £6,380 bringing the grand total raised by the GoGo Hares for Break up to £415,980.

Martin Green, GoGo Hares project manager from Break said: “This was the first time we have done a raffle and it was a step into the unknown, however it has been really well received and it is wonderful that someone who has supported our trail had a chance of winning the hare to keep forever.”

In a draw made on Monday afternoon, in Intu Chapelfield competition organisers revealed the lucky winner of Pablo lives in King’s Lynn.
