The Kirkwood
Wild in Art

A Wild in Art event brought to you by The Kirkwood.

Lucas Lee join the pack to build awareness for The Kirkwood

Chartered Building Surveyors, Project Managers and Quantity Surveyors, Lucas Lee, are the latest company to join Snowdogs Support Life, Kirklees, signing up to become a large sculpture sponsor for the North’s most anticipated art trail of the year.

With offices in Huddersfield and Leeds, Kirklees is at the very heart of Lucas Lee. Many of the company’s clients and employees are based in the area and will be familiar with the impact of The Kirkwood’s life-changing work throughout the borough.

Raising awareness of the charity’s essential work is one of the main reasons for the company’s involvement. Managing Director, Christopher Lee comments: ‘We are pleased to support Snowdogs Support Life, Kirklees, not only to recognise the important work that The Kirkwood do in the local community but also to support an exciting arts project that will light-up and raise the profile of Kirklees across the country.’

Over the years, Wild in Art has become an incredibly established name in the art and event spaces. Not only do artists from across the country bid to have their work chosen for the various trails (this isn’t the first time for many of our artists!), but businesses and organisations are equally as eager to join the cause when they witness the success from other trails. After hearing such positive things from his wife, Vanessa, about Newcastle’s Great North Snowdogs trail in 2016, Christopher was keen to get his company involved in the next Wild in Art trail to come to the area – better still, Snowdogs Support Life, Kirklees happens to be right on their doorstep!

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 the magic of The Snowdog character to life through an extraordinary public art trail.

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.
