Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail

Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail is on the streets right now! 

There are 200 Oor Wullie sculptures all over Scotland, all uniquely painted, for you to find this summer. The trail runs for 11 until 30 August 2019, culminating in a series of Farewell Events and nationwide auctions in each of the five host cities, Aberdeen, Inverness, Dundee, Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Scotland’s first ever national public art trail will unite the country as it raises awareness and vital funds for Scotland’s children’s hospitals, including Tayside Children’s Hospital.

  • Becoming a national, regional or education sponsor
  • Sponsoring an Oor Wullie sculpture – details available HERE
  • Exploring the trails in each city with your friends and family

Funds raised through the trail will support The ARCHIE Foundation, Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity and Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity, helping children in hospital across the country.

Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail is a Wild in Art event, and would not be possible without the support of DC Thomson Media.
