St. Enoch Centre welcomes Oor Wullie for 30th Birthday celebrations
St. Enoch welcomed a special guest to the centre today as Oor Wullie was unveiled to Glasgow shoppers!
To celebrate St. Enoch Centre’s 30th anniversary this year, a specially designed Oor Wullie sculpture will take centre stage near the Atrium on level one. ‘Oor Celebration Wullie’ will form part of Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail – a free public art trail coming to Glasgow this summer.
When the trail launches and ‘Oor Celebration Wullie’ joins the trail, shoppers visiting the centre can download the official Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail app on their mobile device, ‘unlock’ the St Enoch Centre sculpture and claim a special reward from the centre’s customer services desk.
Scotland’s first ever nationwide public art trail, Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail, will run for 11 weeks from June across five host cities including Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee, Aberdeen and Inverness. It will raise vital funds for Scotland’s children’s hospital charities including; Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity, Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity and The ARCHIE Foundation. Once launched, there will be an official trail app and printed map to allow visitors to go out, enjoy the Glasgow trail, and visit St Enoch’s very own sculpture.
Anne Ledgerwood, General Manager of St. Enoch Centre, said: “We are extremely proud to sponsor and welcome one of Scotland’s most iconic figures, Oor Wullie, to the centre as part of our 30th anniversary celebrations and to be part of Scotland’s first ever national art trail.
“We are sure Wullie will be warmly welcomed by all of our shoppers young and old who will help to play their part in raising both funds and awareness of Scotland's children's hospital charities.”
Over 173,000 babies, children and young people are treated at Glasgow’s Royal Hospital for Children every year. Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity sits firmly at the heart of the hospital, raising money to invest in equipment, research and the improvement of facilities and services for families and children in hospital to ensure they receive the best possible care.
Kirsten Sinclair, Chief Operating Officer at Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity, said: “We’re absolutely thrilled that St. Enoch Centre is involved with Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail. It promises to be a spectacular summer attraction for the whole country, and we hope as many people as possible will get involved with the trail.
“We’re incredibly grateful to St. Enoch Centre for their long-standing support for the charity and we’d like to take this opportunity to also thank their shoppers for their generosity. Thanks to their support, we can ensure that the young patients at Scotland’s busiest children’s hospital receive the extra special care they deserve.”
