We were there very early in the morning to set up the course at Intu Chapelfield.

Putterfingers are thrilled to be involved in a major fundraising event in Norwich. A Funsize course graced the courtyard of the Intu Chapelfield shopping centre for a weekend as part of GoGoHares 2018 – a fundraiser to mark the 50th anniversary of local charity Break.

Break has been providing homes for vulnerable children and young people across East Anglia since 1968. GoGoHares is a sculpture trail around Norwich featuring 50 large hare sculptures and 164 leverets (smaller hares) all decorated by local artists for people to find and mark on their maps. At the end of the event, which started in June and ends in October, the sculptures will be auctioned off to raise funds for Break.

GoGoHares is the latest in a series of sculpture trails organised by Break with the help of public art events specialists Wild in Art, who organise major art trails like this all over the world and raise millions for charity. GoGoGorillas in 2013 and GoGoDragons in 2015 were similar events and highly successful in raising funds. This year there have been numerous side-attractions and things to do, including a Guinness World Record attempt at the most people dressed as a hare in one place, which must have been pawsome. Our minigolf course was one such ‘sideshow’ to the main event.

The Putterfingers course was branded ‘GoGoGolf’ and we’ve got some pictures of the course with some of the hares dotted around it. There were plenty of jokes about putting a ball down the rabbit hole, doe-nating a few bucks or going as crazy golf as the Mad March Hare.

The 50 main hare sculptures are ear-normous.

Putterfingers were super-pleased to help out at GoGoHares 2018 and we hope that when the hares are auctioned off it will raise masses of doe for Break!
