UPDATE! At a charity auction on Tuesday evening all 70 of the Oor Wullie figures were sold for an amazing total of £883,000. One sold for £50,000 on it's own! Every penny of the money raised goes to the Archie Foundation Charity which supports local sick children.
Oor Wullie and The Broons have been appearing the Sunday Post every week for 80 years.In order to celebrate this milestone the publishers, DC Thomson & Co Ltd, have created the Oor Wullie Bucket Trail. 70 lifesize Oor Wullie figures have been painted by local people and have been placed all around Dundee. They have generated a huge amount of interest and as part of the celebrations we have produced 80th Anniversary jute bags. They can be seen here and can be purchased from our stockists.
There is an official website where you can read all about the Bucket Trail and how it hopes to raise lots of money for the Archie Foundation Charity which helps sick children throughout Scotland.
