The charities and children who received vital funds raised through Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail this summer have given their thanks in a very special way.
Representatives from Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity, Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity and The ARCHIE Foundation made surprise visits to the partners who made the trail such a success.
The partners, including Arnold Clark, CityLink, Scottish Power, Avian, the Northwood Trust, Paths for All and Zero Waste Scotland were presented with artwork that had been painted by children in hospital, rounding off the fantastic summer of Oor Wullie.
Kirsten Sinclair, Chief Operating Officer at Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity, said: “It was our pleasure to present these very special paintings to just a few of the key partners who made Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail possible.
“Together with a host of sponsors, partners and supporters, they helped to ensure that the trail was a fantastic success, and raised a huge sum for children in hospital across the country.”
A whopping £1.3 million was raised for Scotland’s children’s hospital charities this summer through Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail.
The trail saw 200 specially created Oor Wullie statues placed in select locations in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee, Inverness and Aberdeen.
The statues were then auctioned off at special nights to raise money for Scotland’s most vulnerable children.
The most paid for a single sculpture was £25,000 for Metal Oor Wullie, an intricate metalwork design.
