Piercing shop Punktured will design its very own giant snail after becoming a Snailspace sponsor.

The project will see 50 uniquely-decorated snails dotted around the city later this year to raise cash for Martlets Hospice in Hove.

Punktured owner Julie Greenfield said:“I just love the idea of a snail that represents what we do and surprises people when they bump into it. I saw the impact of the Snowdogs in 2016; the way it brought people together and captured their imaginations, everyone was talking about it. I knew immediately that if it happened again we wanted to be part of it.

Also, as a business we have always supported local charities. Martlets is a much-loved charity in the city and I understand how important it is to support their amazing work. We are really pleased to be able to support them whilst also being part of such a fun, creative and high profile event.“

But will the ‘Punktured’ snail be pierced? Julie said: “In my mind I see a very pink snail, and, as for piercing, well I think everyone will just have to wait and see. Whatever happens it is going to be eye-catching!”
