A floral Oor Wullie sculpture has become a focal point in a Moray village – as a drop-off location for sacks of food.
Floo’er Wullie sat proudly in Aberdeen city centre last year as part of the Big Bucket Trail before being auctioned off in a sale that raised £1.3 million for The Archie Foundation.
The beloved Scottish character now sits permanently in the village square in Fochabers and is currently presiding over free potatoes for locals, which have been dropped off in a crate from the nearby Christies Garden Centre.
Owner Gordon Christie bought the cheery sculpture in the auction alongside three others that adorn his caravan parks in Fochabers, Burghead and Lossiemouth.
The garden centre has made the vegetables available for residents to reduce waste while they are temporarily closed during the lockdown and have urged people to take only what they need while leaving some for others.
