We’re delighted to be supporting The Big Hoot charity trail which has recently gone live in Ipswich and runs to the 3rd September. The trail has been organised by St Elizabeth Hospice and Wild in Art and sees 50 individually designed Big Hoot owls placed around Ipswich for everyone to see and enjoy. The Poundfield Precast Ltd sponsored owl is called Frutti Hooti and is situated on St Matthew Street and has been painted by the very talented Alison Calvesbert-Rearden. We also produced all the plinths that the Big Hoot Owls sit on.
The inspiration came about as the hospice team felt the popular view of owls being knowledgeable and wise creatures linked to the support St Elizabeth Hospice has provided patients and families since 1989, whilst taking them under the wing of its care. The hospice improves life for people living with progressive and life-limiting illnesses. They provide specialist support wherever it is needed, in the home, in the community or at their hospice, and we hope that the trail will help raise lots of funds to help provide local hospice care to those who need it.
