Get your paws on a Great North Snowdog!

Local charity and Design Network North member St Oswald's Hospice have just five Snowdogs left to purchase!

St Oswald's have teamed up with Wild in Art to stage Tyne and Wear’s biggest ever mass-participation, public art event - Great North Snowdogs

The interactive trail will feature more than 50 large scale Snowdog sculptures, inspired by the much loved animated short film, The Snowman™ and The Snowdog. As well as being able to follow the trail, participants can also collect points with the dedicated app and to try to see as many of the sculptures as possible.

45 of the Snowdogs have already been snapped up, and five beautifully decorated pooches are ready and waiting to go!

By adopting a Snowdog, not only will you have a stunning new pet to brighten up the office, but your organisation will also feature on the Great North Snowdog trail!

Gateshead College, The Bridges and the National Glass Centre are just a few of the locations participating in this regional, interactive event. 

The Snowdogs, beautifully decorated by artists and generously sponsored by local businesses, will be on show for 10 weeks from September 2016, in locations across Tyne and Wear. They will be joined by a pack of little Snowdog sculptures designed by local school children.

After you have enjoyed Great North Snowdogs during its 10-week extravaganza, the large sculptures will be auctioned to raise funds for St Oswald’s Hospice.
