Cambridge: Snowy Farr Statue Unveiled
A statue to celebrate the life of the well known eccentric Cambridge fundraiser Snowy Farr is being unveiled this afternoon (Tuesday the 7th of Aug) in the Market Square.
Snowy Farr was a white haired, bearded man regularly accompanied by dogs, cats and mice, who dedicated his life to raising money for the blind. He died, penniless, in 2007.
Snowy entertained the people of Cambridge, while at the same time raising thousands of pounds for the Cambridgeshire Society for the Blind and Partially Sighted, the Guide Dogs for the Blind, and for Camsight.
Councillor Sheila Stuart said, “This project has been eagerly anticipated for several years, and it is so special for me to be able to officiate as Mayor, having been involved with the project from the outset."
The statue has been paid for with cash from 'S106' developer contributions, which can only be spent on commissioning new public artwork.
The Artist Gary Webb who designed the sculpture didn't want a formal, serious sculpture like Nelson on a clump. He wanted to bring the fun back and make something much more engaging and memorable for all ages, but especially children. He believed the sculpture should be abstract because Snowy was an abstract, eccentric English character.
An 18-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering Leonne Weeks, 16, who was found dead on a path in Rotherham.
