City of Edinburgh Council

The City of Edinburgh Council is the second largest council in Scotland and the ninth largest in the UK, with a gross revenue budget of over £1.5bn (net c. £968m) for the financial year 2017/18. Our responsibilities are wide-ranging, from our superb school system through to social work, housing, economic development, parks and green spaces, culture and sport, festivals and events, and roads and transport. The Council is committed to playing a dynamic role on the local, national and international stage. Andrew Kerr, Chief Executive of the City of Edinburgh Council, said: “The Oor Wullie BIG bucket trail is an imaginative and fun way of raising money for Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity and children’s hospitals across Scotland. There can’t be many people who haven’t read an amusing tale of Scotland’s favourite son and I’m delighted that the Council is supporting this very worthwhile venture. I would encourage everyone to take part in this fun art trail which will have a hugely positive impact on the health of thousands of sick children.”
