  • Lizzie Hudson on the 4th plinth for brainstrust!

    Lizzie Hudson from Ipswich won the chance to appear on the 4th plinth in Trafalgar Square for an hour. Better still, she devoted her time on the plinth to braintrust and our battle against brain cancer, raising over £600 for charity.

    Lizzie's appearance is part of sculptor Anthony Gormley's 'One & Other' project, wherein he is  asking the people of the UK to occupy the empty Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square in London, a space normally reserved for statues of Kings and Generals. Gormley's idea is that successful applicants then become an image of themselves, and a representation of the whole of humanity. 

    Every hour, 24 hours a day, for 100 days without a break, a different person will make the Plinth their own, including lucky Lizzie!

    Lizzie, 26, states "I wanted to do something useful with my time, and so decided to raise money for this much deserving charity". And she'll put her time on the plinth to good use, making the longest paper chain she could, racing to make it nearly reach the ground before her hour was up.
