Oor Crossing

Oor Crossing comes home to the hospital

We are delighted that Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail sculpture Oor Crossing is now in his forever home at the entrance to Edinburgh’s Children’s Hospital, providing a very warm welcome for all children, families and staff.

The much-loved sculpture – designed by Edinburgh artist Stacey Adam – pays homage to the iconic Queensferry Crossing and took pride of place on Princes Street throughout summer 2019, featuring in many a selfie as part of Scotland’s first every nationwide public art trail.

Having been bought at auction by Gordon and Maisie Bow (Gordon Bow Plant Hire), Oor Crossing has now kindly been donated back to the hospital by the family in loving memory of their son Stuart, who spent much of his young life at the Sick Kids.

Painted in bright colours of blue, green and purple to represent the Firth of Forth and with the Queensferry Crossing adorning his bucket, you won’t miss him on arrival. Be sure to give him a wave if you’re passing!

About the Artist

Stacey Adam is a keen charity fundraiser who has sold prints of her digital artwork to raise funds for various children’s charities. She loves art and design and the way that it benefits children and adults in their lives. Stacey’s teenage daughter has a rare medical condition which has seen her attend countless appointments at the children’s hospital over the years.

An enormous thank you to Stacey for designing Oor Crossing, and of course to the incredible Bow family for giving this wonderful gift to the hospital.
