The residents have learning disabilities and/or mental health issues. They wanted to highlight they are individuals with a range of abilities and interests. They were keen to illustrate their different personalities, some of the things they enjoy and make their sculpture colourful, cheerful and fun, reflective of their independence and different hobbies and interests.
After the trail finishes the Swindogs will be auctioned to raise vital funds for Julia’s House, your local children’s hospice charity. If you have sponsored a uniquely designed and decorated big balloon dog sculpture this will be your chance to adopt your Swindog. Then it can go to its forever home where it can be enjoyed for many years to come!Find out more
