DHL Supply Chain partner with The Kirkwood to get The Snowdog art trail sculptures moving

DHL Supply Chain is the latest sponsor to join The Kirkwood’s Snowdogs Support Life, Kirklees art trail, which is set to launch this Autumn.

Inspired by the much-loved animated film, The Snowman™ and The Snowdog, the sequel to Raymond Briggs’ classic picture book and film The Snowman™, Snowdogs Support Life, Kirklees will bring around 60 Snowdog sculptures to Kirklees for an eight-week public trail event next autumn.

As the project’s logistics partner, DHL will be responsible for transporting the artworks across Kirklees to their trail locations, and will be assisting with removal of the sculptures after the event as they make their way to auction.

Providing their services free of charge to the charity, the DHL Supply Chain Home Delivery Team will be heavily involved in supporting the operational side of the trail and hope that this event will present a unique opportunity for staff to pull together and volunteer for a fantastic local cause.

 

Natalie Frow, Vice President of Home Delivery at DHL Supply Chain (pictured above), comments: ‘Our DHL Supply Chain Home Delivery team will be working hard to deliver the decorated Snowdogs across the Kirklees region for the entire community to enjoy.

‘We’re incredibly proud to be providing logistics to support the Art Trail next year and to be standing side by side with a local charity that improves the quality of life for local people facing a life limiting illness. We look forward to seeing all of the Snowdogs in place, helping raise money for the Kirkwood.’

Organised by The Kirkwood in partnership with Wild in Art and Snowman Enterprises Ltd, Snowdogs Support Life, Kirklees will be a free large scale art event and will show off the very best creative talent from local, regional and national artists. As part of this one of a kind public art event in West Yorkshire, businesses are being given the opportunity to sponsor one of the individually designed Snowdog sculptures. This presents businesses with a unique and exciting way to promote their business throughout the local area.

The trail will help raise awareness and essential funds for The Kirkwood as they continue their work to help and support those living with a life limiting illness in Kirklees, while encouraging visitors from far and wide to explore new parts of our region.

Snowdogs Support Life, Kirklees will launch in September 2022.
