The BIG Stampede will be joined by mini hippos, designed by local school children and teachers, which will appear in pods across the town – to create the schools trail.

The Little Stampede is an integral part of The BIG Stampede offering 40 schools a unique opportunity to showcase the creativity discovered in the classroom every day.

The sculptures are accompanied by a detailed education pack full of creative ideas and resources to help bring the project to life. They are designed to inspire students to get involved with whole-school activity and also offer ideas for fundraising activities so that young people can contribute to raising much-needed funds for The Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity.

Together we will create the Little Stampede of Hamilton trail with 40 mini hippos on display throughout the town along with the larger safari animals creating The BIG Stampede.

There will be downloadable trail maps and a BIG Stampede app encouraging people to get together, explore their town on foot and enjoy sculpture spotting!
