San Fran Wullie
San Fran Wullie
One of the artworks in the Oor Wullie's WEE Bucket Trail. San Fran Wullie, created by St Francis' Primary School, is located inside a reconstructed period shop inside Glasgow's Riverside Museum.

The whole school of St Francis’ Primary were involved in the design of Oor Wullie. It is based on the blue and brown of our school uniform. Blue represents Our Lady; brown represents St Francis. We have a new nursery class and the green represents the base colour of their sweatshirts. We regularly fundraise for MISSIO and the colours on the dungarees represent the colours of the MISSIO ROSARY. This sculpture is sponsored by Arnold Clark. See LinkExternal link.
Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail
Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail ran for 11 weeks from 17th June 2019 – 30th August 2019. There were 200 Oor Wullies, mainly in the Scottish cities of Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness. Scotland’s first ever national public art trail aimed to raise awareness and vital funds for Scotland’s children’s hospital charities.
There was also an Oor Wullie’s WEE Bucket Trail with over 300 wee Oor Wullie sculptures. These had been designed and created by wee yin’s and big yin’s at nurseries, schools and community groups.
Funds raised through the trail will support Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity, Edinburgh Children's Hospital Charity, and the ARCHIE Foundation.
At the end of the Trail period, the individual art works will be sold off at auctions in the five host cities.
