What is Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail? For every child in Scotland… laughter is the best medicine The biggest art trail EVER will take place in Scotland in Summer 2019. Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail is ‘nationwide’ and will be taking to the streets of Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee, Aberdeen and Inverness. The trail will unite the country as it raises awareness for Scotland’s national children’s hospital charities. Over 150 life-size individually decorated Oor Wullie sculptures will be dotted across the country… waiting to be discovered, for everyone to enjoy! With your help and the aid of Scotland’s favourite son, Oor Wullie, we need to raise vital funds to transform the experiences of Scotland’s children and young people in hospitals to provide the very best possible care and allow them to be a child first and a patient second. In association with Wild in Art, supported by DC Thomson Media.
