Today we shine the spotlight on trail stalwarts Quicksilver Moving and Storage, who have supported St Oswald’s Hospice and our art trails since Great North Snowdogs back in 2016.

Quicksilver are Official Trail Supporters, lending their skills, time and equipment to help the team at St Oswald’s Hospice deliver the trail. As well as providing transport for Shaun and his flock, they also store the very large and heavy concrete plinths that the sculptures will be attached to. They are a very important part of the team and a joy to work with, so we are delighted to have them on board for Shaun the Sheep on the Tyne.

Joanne Ball, Commercial Business Manager at Quicksilver Moving and Storage said:

“Shaun the Sheep on the Tyne is an enjoyable way to raise awareness about St Oswald’s Hospice and the great work they do with families dealing with life limiting conditions. Quicksilver is delighted to be involved with the latest trail and support Shaun on his journey throughout the North East”

We popped into the Quicksilver office in Newcastle to introduce Shaun to their staff, (as an Oscar-winning film star, he likes to know who will be chauffeuring him around in advance) and he (and we!) were delighted to bump into the Quicksilver pets – some gorgeous alpacas and pigmy goats ! Not one to ever be outshone, Shaun posed for photos before heading back to his flock.

Thank you to the Quicksilver team for all of their support, skills and hard work in making the trail happen. Who knows, next time you drive past a Quicksilver van, it may well have VIP sheep on board!
