Final sale of wolves will benefit charities

Posted on Friday, 27th November, 2015

A special St Edmund's Day auction saw 14 of the artworks sold, raising in excess of £10,000 and the remaining wolves will be auctioned by Lacy, Scott and Knight at midday on the 5th December.

 

Among the wolves still available for sale are the jute wolf that was positioned under the Norman Tower, a crochet wolf that took pride of place at Bury St Edmunds Town Council and a unique wolf birdbox. Full details of all the wolves to be auctioned can be found at www.lskauctioncentre.co.uk. Funds raised from the sale will be shared between the chosen charities of St Edmundsbury Mayor Councillor Patrick Chung.

 

Chief Executive of Ourburystedmunds Mark Cordell said: "The wolves that were auctioned at the St Edmund's Day Celebratory Dinner hosted by the Mayor, were eagerly snapped up. I'm delighted that the new owners have kindly agreed that two of them, the mosaic wolf in the arc and the upright metal wolf in the Great Churchyard will remain in place.

"In addition the Oak Book has been donated to the town so the Wolf Trail will have a long term legacy here. I'd like to thank everyone who has supported the Wolf Trail and the auctions as the wolves were a wonderful attraction for the summer. We are now accepting sealed bids for the remaining wolves from those who can't get to the auction and details can be found at Ourburystedmunds.com/wolftrail."

 

A total of 26 wolves, created by local artists, were on display to celebrate the legend of St Edmund's wolf, which is said to have guarded King Edmund's head after he was captured and killed by the Danes. The art trail was made possible thanks to the Business Improvement District (BID) organisation Ourburystedmunds, working with partners who make up the ‘Town Team' group. It's brought thousands more visitors into the town since it began, with many attempting a competition to find all of them.
