Calling all teachers and community youth group leaders!

Your young people can have the opportunity to decorate their very own little Shaun sculpture and raise funds for St Oswald’s Hospice by taking part in an art adventure featuring this much-loved and instantly recognisable character.

Along with the rest of the flock, your sculpture will be displayed throughout summer 2023 at venues across Tyne and Wear for everyone to admire and enjoy. After the trail, the little Shauns will be returned to their creators (that’s you!) to keep forever.

By being part of Shaun the Sheep on the Tyne, you will raise the profile of your school or group, give the young people an exciting learning opportunity and make a difference to your local hospice.
