Brainstrust in the U.K.

From the website: link here

Lizzie Hudson to appear on the 4th plinth for brainstrust!

"Fantastic news just in that Lizzie Hudson from Ipswich has won the chance to appear on the 4th plinth in Trafalgar Square for an hour. Better still, she's devoting her time on the plinth to braintrust and our battle against brain cancer.

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 have decided to raise money for this much deserving charity". And she'll certainly be putting her time on the plinth to good use! She's hoping make the longest paper chain she can, racing to make it reach the ground before her hour is up.

So, if you're in London, why not come along and meet us, and Lizzie! We'll be at Trafalgar square cheering Lizzie on from 5pm on the 16th August. If you can't make it, you'll be able to watch a video, streaming live, of Lizzie on the plinth at

Go Lizzie!"
