Meet our supporters

These enthusiastic, ambitious and generous companies pledged to be inspired, get imaginative and celebrate the uniqueness of Suffolk in the biggest art event ever to take place across the region – even bigger than the Pigs! Without them this campaign could not have happened, so we are extremely pleased to have had them on board.

A word from some of our repeat supporters…

Richard Norrington, CEO, Ipswich Building Society

“We are pleased to once again be sponsoring Ipswich’s biggest, brightest art trail following the success of Pigs Gone Wild in 2016. With the second trail set to be even bigger, we couldn’t miss out. We benefit from the publicity and community spirit generated by the trail, and make it a focus of our summer campaigns – and beyond! We regularly take our Pigs Gone Wild sculpture, Pretty Penny, out on the road to visit our branches and community events where she is recognised and warmly received.”

Cllr David Ellesmere, Ipswich Borough Council

“Pigs Gone Wild was a great success and one of my memories of the summer was seeing dozens of families out on the trail and exploring parts of Ipswich they perhaps had forgotten about. The Council looks forward to working with St Elizabeth Hospice on future ideas.”

Cllr Christopher Hudson, Suffolk County Council

“We knew from the way the whole community got involved with Pigs Gone Wild and the excitement it created that it had been a massive success. The impact on the economy shown from the research conducted not only goes to prove this assumption but also captures the true scale of the impact.. On behalf of Suffolk County Council I would like to extend my congratulations and thanks to the whole team at St Elizabeth Hospice for their tremendous work in bringing this superb initiative to fruition. Thanks to you the town has secured a very real and tangible economic, social and activity boost.”

Emily Sullivan, Ashtons Legal

“Law firm Ashtons are really excited to be involved in the Hospice’s art trail in 2019, having been involved in similar projects in the region and Pigs Gone Wild from the outset – in fact, the firm signed up for their pig before the sponsors information and offering had even been agreed! Keen to maximise involvement in the project, a team from the firm chose the design ‘Pig N Mix’ early on as she was not only colourful and fun but her mix of sweets represented both the mix of legal services that the firm offer and the mix of clients that the firm represent.”
