Hare, there and everywhere!
Clan Cancer Support, the north-east’s leading cancer support charity, has partnered with Wild in Art once again to bring an exciting new art trail to the north-east, Moray, Orkney and Shetland.
The Big Hop Trail will take the public on another cultural tour of the north-east and the islands from July to September 2023, with hare sculptures designed and created by some of the country’s most talented artists.
The trail coincides with Clan’s 40th anniversary, with the 40 hares being the focal point to celebrate the charity’s commitment to supporting people affected by cancer.
We chose the hare sculpture as they are an indigenous animal found in all parts of Clan’s geography. Much like our clients during their cancer journey, hares have to navigate rough and difficult terrain in order to survive. They are also adaptable, like our services team who deliver support to anyone affected by cancer. Most importantly, hares have incredible hearing. What better way to depict our lifeline listening and support service and the importance of being heard?
The Big Hop is for everybody! Whether you are a business interested in sponsoring a sculpture, an artist who wants to design and paint one, or a school or community group who would love to adopt a leveret as part of our learning programme, there are many opportunities to join the drove.
“ “It was great to be involved with Clan’s original ‘Light the North’ trail, there was such a buzz about it all. It was also so good to be able to attend the finale auction to buy back the sculpture we had sponsored, as it was one of the first in-person events I had attended post-covid. I am delighted to show my support once again and be the first official sponsor for The Big Hop Trail.” Scott Birnie, The Good Sleep Company.
