Hares are hopping to Scotland

The Big Hop Trail, a Wild in Art event with local charity Clan Cancer Support, will be the second trail this partnership is bringing to Scotland. This comes after the success of Light The North, which raised over £300,000 for the charity in 2021.

From July to September in 2023, the new trail see around 40 hares adorning the open spaces of Moray, Orkney and Shetland.

The aim is to not only raise awareness and funds for the charity but also celebrate their 40th anniversary. The sculptures will celebrate the charity’s work supporting those affected by cancer, their family, carers and friends.

Around 100 local schools will be involved to create a trail of smaller decorated ‘moon gazer’ hares. These will be found in clusters at indoor venues alongside the main trail.
