Welcome Osc-Hare the first completed sculpture

Just 390 days to the GoGoHares trail beginning on the streets of Norwich and Norfolk and today the first hare gets to take centre stage as it is revealed to the public to a round of applause.

Tonight the sponsors are gathered for an event where they find out the latest about the project, as well as attend some workshops to help them make the most of the trail. Break charity are pleased to announce that all the 50 city hares have been allocated a sponsor.

The evening will culminate in the first public appearance of a finished hare sculpture, called Osc-Hare. Sponsored by intu-Chapelfield, it was commissioned and created to represent 50 years of Break with a sprayed and lacquered finish to look like an Oscar. Sheridan Smith, of intu Chapelfield said ‘Everyone at intu Chapelfield is so excited to be working with the team at Break again, we can’t wait for GoGoHares! We’ve had a sneak preview of our hare, Osc-Hare, and he is absolutely stunning. It is a privilege to be able to support such an amazing local charity.'

There are just a handful of moongazing hares left to sponsor that will be located around Norfolk giving a new dimension to the trail options.

GoGoCreate the learning programme for schools, clubs and organisations has already launched and getting a good response. Artists have until 28th August to send in their designs for the 2018 trail, which will be decided at the next event in September. More details on elements can be downloaded from the website gogohares.co.uk.

Michael Rooney, commercial manager for Break said ‘Break are heading for such an exciting time over the next 18 months as we celebrate 50 years of working with local vulnerable children, young people and families in 2018. This coincides with the GoGoHares sculpture trail bringing fun and creativity to the city and county as well as highlighting some of the fantastic work that Break does. Hopefully the people of Norwich and Norfolk will be proud that Break will continue to develop its vital services whilst at the same time delivering a high standard and inclusive event for all to enjoy.’

The main GoGoHares city and moongazer trail will run from 24 June to 8 September 2018 and the GoGoCreate trail will take place from 2 July until 2 September 2018.

The 50 city hares each representing a year in the life of Break charity, will be auctioned on 11th October where they will be going to their forever homes, and raising valuable funds for the charity which supports children and young people around East Anglia.
