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.

A snowdog was purchased on behalf of our school by Gentoo, so that we could take part in this exciting project.  We wanted our Snowdog to represent our school and the community of Southwick. Every child in school designed their own unique patch and our Family Art Group began layering and binding the pieces together to decorate and cover him. Similar to a traditional patchwork quilt ‘PATCH’ tells our story. He symbolises the individuality of each and every child – but also the cohesion of our school and its wider community.

Our Snowdog will be on view to the public at Sunderland Museum and Winter gardens from the 19th September.
