Thank Moo to everyone who came to enjoy our trail in the Summer of 2021!

The cows left their locations on 5 September 2021 and they were auctioned at The Graduate Hotel on 23 September by auctioneer Charles Hanson.

The total taken on the night was £257,100 and the money raised went to local charity Break. For the full story on the event and to see the final cattle-logue for each cow click here.

The mini Moos have been returned to their creators for the schools, colleges and community groups to enjoy for years to come.

Thank you to all our sponsors, partners, supporters, moo crew volunteers, artists, schools, the local community and residents for making this happen.

We have loved adding colour and fun to the summer of 2021, we hope you enjoyed the trail too.
