Chris Williams, Managing Director, R.T. Williams explained why they wanted to get behind the campaign:
“At R.T. Williams we have been supporting the Martlets Hospice for a number of years and are always impressed by the work that they do for our local community. In 2016 the Snowdogs raised over £300k. We are really hoping that the wonderful people of Brighton & Hove and beyond will take these beautiful Snails along with the #BeMoreSnail message to their hearts and raise huge amounts once again for such an inspirational cause.”
The partnership will see the two firms work together for the project and Andrew Austin, Managing Director, Austin Rees explained why he wanted to team up:
“Austin Rees are huge fans of the Martlets and we’re particularly inspired by this year’s theme. So many of us are guilty of becoming wrapped up in our busy lives and forgetting what’s really important. The #BeMoreSnail campaign will encourage us to appreciate the moment more. As for Snails as a blank canvas, they’re perfect – not just for the artists but for our businesses. A tough shell protects a snail’s soft body from predators and harsh elements, in the same way that our homes provide us with shelter and insurance provides protection for the people and things we value most.”
The jointly sponsored snail will take its place on the Snailway in September alongside 49 other giant gastropods.
