BREAK’S 50TH AN­NIVER­SARY

EDP Norfolk - - People -

NOR­FOLK Break has been help­ing chil­dren, young peo­ple and fam­i­lies in the re­gion since 1968 and pro­ceeds from the com­mem­o­ra­tive mug will help pay for the vi­tal work sup­port­ing those in need.

As well as run­ning chil­dren’s homes in Nor­folk and Cam­bridgeshire, it also of­fers men­tor­ing, sup­port for chil­dren with dis­abil­i­ties, a ther­a­peu­tic fos­ter­ing ser­vice and a range of com­mu­ni­ty­based ser­vices.

Fol­low­ing the hugely pop­u­lar GoGoGo­ril­las and GoGoDragons cam­paigns in pre­vi­ous years, this sum­mer will see 50 gi­ant hare sculp­tures wait­ing to be dis­cov­ered across the city.

Michael Rooney, head of com­mer­cial ser­vices at Break, said: “2018 is a very spe­cial year for us with the GoGoHares sculp­ture trail ar­riv­ing on the streets of Nor­wich and around the county in June. We have many events planned to en­gage both young and old in cel­e­brat­ing this mile­stone with us and help­ing us to con­tinue our work with vul­ner­a­ble chil­dren, young peo­ple and fam­i­lies.”

Once again, each of the hares will be in­di­vid­u­ally painted by lo­cal artists and are sponsored by busi­nesses and or­gan­i­sa­tions. The de­signs are al­ways colour­ful, bold with plenty of hu­mour, his­tory and lo­cal ref­er­ences thrown in. A trail map and tick­list will be avail­able to en­able ev­ery­one to track down as many of the hares as pos­si­ble through­out the sum­mer. The GoGoHares trail, which has been or­gan­ised in part­ner­ship with Wild in Art, is due to go live on June 24 and will run un­til Septem­ber 8.
