The ARCHIE Foundation

The ARCHIE Foundation has teamed up with us and DC Thomson Media, and together with Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity and Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity, will create the world’s first nationwide art trail. Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail aims to significantly boost Scotland’s provision for children and young people in hospital by raising essential funds through the art trail, associated events and five city auctions.

“Each charity is different, but we all share a common aim of making the experience of being in hospital as positive as it can be for local children. The BIG Bucket Trail is such an exciting way to bring together people all over Scotland, not only to support the charities, but also to get out and enjoy one of the biggest art trails of its kind. ARCHIE is very proud to be part of it.”

David Wood, CEO of the ARCHIE Foundation
