They play Scotland’s favourite old men and they are now supporting Scotland’s favourite son as Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail reaches its halfway point.
Still Game’s Ford Kiernan and Greg Hemphill (aka Jack and Victor) are calling on members of the public who haven’t already got involved in the trail to do so.
Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail sees 200 specially created Oor Wullie statues placed on the streets of Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness to raise money for Scotland’s children’s hospital charities.
At the end of the summer all the statues will be auctioned off to raise vital funds for Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity, The ARCHIE Foundation and Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity.
Running from June 17 – August 30 the trail has now reached its halfway point, but there’s still plenty of time to get involved.
The BIG Bucket Trail app can be downloaded to smartphones and tablets via Google Play on Android or the App Store on iOS systems and maps out the locations of all the statues across Scotland.
The map can also be accessed online, detailing the location of every statue to be found.
To raise awareness, Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail are asking everyone to tag their Oor Wullie statue selfies on social media with #OWBBT.
The full-sized Wullie sculptures – located in local libraries, art galleries, shopping centres, workplaces, sports centres and public spaces – have been visited hundreds of thousands of times.
Urging people across Scotland and their Glasgow hometown to keep getting involved, Ford and Greg said: “We’re supporting Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail all summer.
“Have you got the app? Have you got the map?
“The trail is now at the halfway point and there’s still time for you to get involved.
“There’s 58 large Oor Wullies in Glasgow to collect and it’s a great way to support Glasgow’s Children’s Hospital Charity.
“So we’ll see you on the trail.”
