East of England Co-op to celebrate Norfolk Day with GoGoHares swap shop

In this section

As part of their sponsorship of the GoGoHares trail in Norwich, we're celebrating Norfolk Day by hosting a sticker swap shop.

Followers of the trail who have not yet managed to collect the full set of cards needed to complete the GoGoHares sticker book are being encouraged to get together and trade their duplicates with each other.

The GoGoHares swap shop will take place between 10:00am and 2:00pm on Friday 27th July 2018 at the East of England Co-op Cannerby Lane Food Store, 57 Cannerby Lane, Sprowston, Norfolk, NR7 8NF. 

As well as sticker swapping activities, there will also be the opportunity for customers to enter a prize draw to win £50 worth of store vouchers, receive scratch cards to win a Toyota Yaris and take away free teabags as part of the East of England Co-op’s Tea for Two community scheme.

Speaking about the event, Lynn Warner, Community Events Manager at the East of England Co-op said; “The GoGoHares trail around Norwich has encouraged the community to explore the city, so what better way to celebrate Norfolk Day than by allowing those close to finishing the sticker book to do so.”

Roger Grosvenor, Joint Chief Executive at the East of England Co-op said; “It is brilliant to be a part of such a special event and seeing the streets of Norwich hopping with excitement over the summer has been wonderful.”

Official stockists of the GoGoHares sticker books and stickers, we will be selling the trail accessories throughout the summer in 33 of their food stores in and around Norwich.

GoGoHares 2018 is presented by Break charity in partnership with Wild in Art. The Hare was chosen as it is a popular iconic subject for artists and can regularly be seen in the countryside of East Anglia. Along with 50 city hare sculptures to celebrate 50 years of Break that will form the city trail, there will also be a further 18 moongazer hare sculptures positioned across Norfolk. Together this makes 68 hares, signalling to the year that Break was started.

The interactive trail is expected to attract thousands of tourists throughout the summer. People following the trail will have an opportunity to do so using the GoGoHares App which can be downloaded by searching gogohares on your normal app store.

There will be a last chance to see all of the large sculptures at Hare Today Gone Tomorrow between 7 – 10th October 2018, before they are auctioned off on 11th October 2018 to raise valuable funds for Break.

Funny Bunny will be on display at Norwich station right up until the end of the trail on Saturday 8th September 2018. The East of England Co-op would love to see your photos of Funny Bunny – share them by uploading them to Facebook or Twitter with the hashtag #Funnybunny.
