ONE of Scotland’s most iconic characters is on his way to East Renfrewshire.

The team at business improvement organisation All About Barrhead has partnered with the Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity to sponsor two sculptures as part of Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail 2019.

Life-size statues of Oor Wullie will be on show at the All About Barrhead Awards ceremony on May 31 and the Barrhead Rainbow Run on June 15.

Oor Wullie was also on hand to help launch the new-look medals that will be handed to participants in this year’s Rainbow Run.

Andy Dunlop, of All About Barrhead, said: “As the Rainbow Run just keeps getting bigger and better each year, we knew we had to reflect that in this year’s medals. To be able to launch them with this iconic Oor Wullie sculpture was brilliant.”
