‘Oor Wullie’s Bucket Trail’ (2016)

Over the summer of 2016, Oor Wullie's Bucket Trail saw 55 statues of the iconic Sunday Post comic strip character on display all over Dundee. In September, the statues were auctioned off to raise money for the ARCHIE Foundation’s charity appeal to support a new theatre suite at the Tayside Children’s Hospital.
