Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail – in the news…

Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail captured the hearts and imagination of thousands of people across Scotland.

The ARCHIE Foundation played a key part in the first ever public art trail as one of the three charities to benefit from the auctions.

It was a fantastic summer working with our partners at Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity, Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity, DC Thomson Media and Wild In Art.
