The Big Hoot art trail is now live across Ipswich

Seeking out the Hoots is fun for all ages, but the ten-week event is also a vital fundraiser for St Elizabeth Hospice. It is enables them to be there for people living with progressive and life-limiting illnesses. They offer expert care and support to help them, and their families, maximise the potential from the time they have left.

Could you set up a fundraising page then challenge yourself, your family or work colleagues by taking on the trail?

Choose a challenge:
Can you visit all 50 Hoots in one day?
Plan a route that gives you a fun but challenging run!
Set a target for how many steps you can do while completing the trail. (The Big Hoot App has a handy step counter.)
