We’re so excited to be part of this fantastic new mass participatory free public art and cultural event taking place across Tyne and Wear in September.
Great North Snowdogs is an initiative by St Oswald’s Hospice to unite businesses and the cultural sectors in the region to fundraise for the charity. Artists will design individual Snowdogs and they’ll be placed along a trail around the region for the general public to visit and get interactive with each sculpture.
We’re supporting this great initiative by packing, wrapping and delivering each Snowdog sculpture to their temporary home, then after the 10-week trail, we’ll be collecting each Snowdog and relocating them to their final destination.
Our new large vans and lorries are perfect for this project to comfortably and safely transport the Snowdogs to their specific locations and all hands will be on deck to move these heavy 1.5m high Snowdogs.
We have specialist removal porters who are experienced at moving large heavy items therefore offering our services to support this great initiative is of huge help to ensure these Snowdogs are moved safely to finally be auctioned off at the end of the trail.
We’re big supporters of charity events in the region, especially events that bring art and culture to the general public to increase awareness of the charity as well as the locations these fantastic sculptures will be positioned for 10 weeks.
We’re proud to be amongst some of the big names in the region supporting this great cause including Tyne and Wear Metro, Barbour, Fenwick, Sunderland AFC, Sage Gateshead, Gentoo and many others.
If you’d like to get involved with the Great North Snowdogs there are sponsorship opportunities available and check back on their official website to find out about the trail so you can go and see these wonderful sculptures.
