NHS

2020

To show our thanks to the dedicated NHS workers during the COVID Pandemic, we produced a limited edition of 50 NHS Baby Piranhas and 25 NHS M Mantas.

For every one sold, a portion of the proceeds were donated to the Brackley Community Hospital where you will now find one of each on permanent display.

Our NHS M Mantas are completely sold out but the NHS Baby Piranhas are still available.
