Can you help? – Volunteers sought for Oor Wullie event


The ARCHIE Foundation is looking for volunteers to help out at its ‘Farewell to the Oor Wullies’ event.

The Farewell weekend will see all the local sculptures from the Oor Wullie BIG Bucket Trail come together in Dundee on 13-15 September.

It’s been an unforgettable summer as Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail has taken over the country. Thousands of people have been enjoying seeing the unique sculptures, designed to raise money for Scotland’s children’s hospital charities.

As the BIG Bucket Trail draws to a close, The ARCHIE Foundation is getting ready for the Farewell Weekend, where the public can see all of Dundee, Perth and St Andrews sculptures in one place before they go to auction.

The charity is calling for volunteers to help out at the event which runs from Friday 13 to Sunday 15 September in Slessor Gardens in Dundee.

Volunteers are needed to help out in roles ranging from selling and checking tickets to merchandise and brochure sales, counting money and helping the public. There is something for everyone who wants to help out.

The charity is looking for volunteers for the following time slots:

Friday, 13 September: 10am-2pm and 2-6pm
Saturday, 14 September: 10am-2pm and 2-6pm
Sunday, 15 September: 10am-2pm and 2-6pm

Anyone interested in helping out should email with their availability and she will be in touch to make arrangements.

You will be provided with something to wear and everything you need to know, so all you need to do is get in touch with Tiffeny.

The Farewell Weekend, at Dundee’s Slessor Gardens, is sponsored by Zero Waste Scotland and features all 36 large Oor Wullie sculptures as well as the 33 wee statues created by local schools and community groups.

Volunteering at the Farewell Weekend is a great opportunity for anyone looking to enhance their CV or just to be part of one of the most popular public art events the country has ever seen.
