Oor Wullie's BIG Bucket Trail
In June 2019 The ARCHIE Foundation along with Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity and Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity are launching Scotland’s FIRST Nationwide art trail.
Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail will hit the streets of Scotland on June 17 and run until August 30. Around 200 sculptures of Scotland’s favourite son in different designs will be on show across the country’s five main cities – Dundee, Aberdeen, Inverness, Glasgow and Edinburgh. Dundee & Angus Chamber of Commerce are delighted to once again be supporting The ARCHIE Foundation by sponsoring a sculpture, giving members the opportunity to come on board as a co-sponsor.
The sculpture will be located outside the DACC office at City Quay for the duration of the trail before being taken to auction to help raise funds for The ARCHIE Foundation. The design will be chosen from one of the many artist submissions.
DACC members have the opportunity to collaborate and come together to co-sponsor one sculpture at a cost of £400 + VAT per participant. Not every company in the region will be able to commit to the full sponsorship outright however there are many out there who will be able to contribute a smaller amount and take the opportunity to support this exciting campaign.
