You will probably know by now that Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail, the first ever nationwide public art trail to hit the Scottish city streets, is well on its way to becoming an unforgettable charity event this Summer.
The trail of 300+ Oor Wullies, painted by different artists from across Scotland and beyond, will follow through Glasgow, Inverness, Aberdeen and Dundee.
The trail will raise funds for Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity, the Archie Foundation, and Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity – three superb children’s charities.
Makeovers in action
So, how are the Oor Wullie’s looking so far? And who’s been in charge of giving them a fresh makeover?
Here’s some preview pics of the Oor Wullie’s in prep for this Summer’s extravaganza.
