We all know dealing with just one of Scotland’s iconic scamp would be more than a handful.
But six real-life Oor Wullies welcomed the nation’s favourite son to Airdrie today.
The six aptly named Scotty Brand employees downed tools to meet the Oor Wullie statue sponsored by the company for nationwide children’s charity campaign, Oor Wullie’s Big Bucket Trail.
William Marshall, William Hughes Willam Taylor, Willie Agnew, William Rankin and William Fergie all relished the chance to meet their favourite namesake.
The Scottish food company’s specially painted life size Oor Wullie statue will be unveiled at the top of Buchanan Street in Glasgow this June.
Scotty Brand Oor Wullie will be one of 200 specially designed statues popping up around Scotland later this year to raise funds for the Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity, the Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity and the Archie Foundation.
Oor Wullie’s Big Bucket Trail will run for 11 weeks from 17 June – 30 August culminating in a series of farewell events and nationwide auctions in each of the five host cities, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee, Aberdeen and Inverness.
Michael Jarvis, head of marketing for Scotty Brand said: “We are all really proud to be supporting the Oor Wullie Big Bucket Trail and look forward to seeing our full size Scotty Brand Statue come to life in Buchanan Street in June.
“We didn’t realise we had so many “Wullies” working at Scotty Brand and now we have another one to join the team!”
