Fans of the iconic Lincoln Knights’ Trail will be able to get their hands on an poster souvenir featuring all of the impressive visitors – and raise money to help the homeless in the city in the process.
The exciting trail, which features 36 beautiful hand-painted knight sculptures dotted around the city streets, will be an exciting temporary attraction in the city until September.
Lincolnite photographer Steve Smailes captured each of the trail stars in position for a special project in aid of the Stonebow Media charity of the year, and beneficiary of the trail auction in September, The Nomad Trust.
The trust aims to raise enough money to extend its current night shelter in the city and all profits raised from the sale of the poster, as well as single pictures of the knights, will go towards the charity’s work in the city.
Steve Smailes said: “After the success of the Barons’ Trail in 2015 there is a real buzz about the city for the Knights’ Trail. I went round the trail myself on Saturday to make this gallery and it was great to see people getting involved. I helped a few people get started myself!
“It’s great to walk the city centre and see all of the knights out there and feel the buzz that the trail has created and I wanted to create something that brings all of the great artwork created by the artists together in a single image for people to enjoy and hopefully help raise even more money for the Nomad Trust.
“The poster features images of all 36 sculptures on the trail in their places across the city centre. I hope it will act as a souvenir for people to keep as a reminder of the trail even after it finishes and the knights go to auction.
“In keeping with the aim of the trail, to support a worthy local charity in the Nomad Trust, all the profits from the posters will be getting sent to the Nomad Trust to support their work with the homeless in Lincoln.”
