Wild in Art bring the magic of The Snowman™ and The Snowdog to the streets of the UK with Snowdog Art Trails. Partnering with local charities Snowdog Art Trails raise not only awareness but vital funds. After 3 months on the streets the Snowdog Art Trails culminate with the hugely anticipated Snowdog auctions. Auctions are streamed live and watched by hundreds of bidders and interested onlookers’ eager to see the Snowdog sculptures find their forever homes. In 2016 the Snowdog Art Trail auctions raised nearly £600,000 for charity.
Great North Snowdogs – the largest free public art trail ever to take place in the North East – boosted the region’s economy by a massive £16.5m. More than 676,000 people visited the trail of 61 sculptures and, figures released by St Oswald’s Hospice – which organised the event, alongside creative producers, Wild in Art show visitors from across the UK splashed out on goods and services during their stay. Tyne and Wear residents formed the majority visitors, spending on average £18.37 a trip, while those from further afield registered a £25.32 average spend.
of your purchase price goes to charity.
During the Snowdog Art Trails every time we sell a Snowdog figurine we donate 7.5% of the purchase price to the nominated charity to support them in their vital work.
During 2016 we worked with charity partners St. Oswald’s Hospice in Newcastle for ‘Great North Snowdogs’, and Martlets Hospice in Brighton for ‘Snowdogs by the Sea’. In 2017 we’re pleased to be working with Tŷ Hafan, the Children’s Hospice in Cardiff for ‘Snowdogs: Tails in Wales’.
So by picking up a small memento, you’re making a big contribution to the success of the trail.
