Buck­et­load of help from Wul­lie

The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - NEWS -

The Oor Wul­lie Bucket Trail in Dundee in 2016 raised nearly £900,000 for the ap­peal.

The trail will re­turn next year for Scot­land’s first ever na­tion­wide art trail.

Stat­ues will go on dis­play in Dundee, Ed­in­burgh, Glas­gow and Aberdeen be­fore be­ing auc­tioned to raise money for Ed­in­burgh Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal Char­ity, The ARCHIE Foun­da­tion and Glas­gow Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal.

David Wood, of ARCHIE, said: “With key fundrais­ing events such as the Dundee Santa Dash com­ing up on Sun­day De­cem­ber 2, and Beards for Bairns run­ning from Christ­mas un­til Burns Night once again, we are so grate­ful for the sup­port of in­di­vid­u­als and busi­nesses in Dundee and be­yond, in­clud­ing our won­der­ful fundrais­ing com­mit­tee.

“We are get­ting ever closer to our tar­get of £2m for the project, our first in part­ner­ship with NHS Tay­side. We are al­ready look­ing at fur­ther po­ten­tial projects to get in­volved in at Tay­side Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal once the the­atre suite tar­get has been reached.

“This is just the start of ARCHIE’S re­la­tion­ship with the chil­dren’s hos­pi­tal – we plan to con­tinue to make the dif­fer­ence for sick chil­dren in Tay­side.”
