The young professionals’ network has sponsored a colourful 5ft sculpture designed by artist Amrit Singh and named “Ramtastic” – and the team visited the ram on a team-building session on 23 July.
It is one of 30 rams dotted around Derby city centre and is located at the very beginning of the route outside Derby Museum & Art Gallery.
The trail, which runs from 27 May to 22 August and can be followed using a free app, has been organised by Derby Museums in partnership with Wild in Art, with the aim of promoting the city’s open spaces and cultural heritage. The rams will be auctioned for charity on 9 September.
Lucy Robinson, the Chamber’s director of resources and Generation Next lead, said: “We’re delighted to be taking part in the Derby Ram Trail, which is a great initiative to bring people back to the city centre and showcase everything it has to offer.
“It’s great to be at the very start of the trail, with Amrit’s colourful and vibrant design fitting in nicely with Generation Next’s commitment to diversity and inclusivity.”
