Here come the cows!
CowParade Surrey is the world’s largest public art event, and it has arrived in Surrey! This exciting exhibition will see over 60 full-size, fibreglass cows uniquely decorated by artists and placed around Surrey for all to discover! The idea behind CowParade is that cows are sponsored by businesses, decorated by artists and auctioned off to raise lots of mooolaa for charities!!
Cows are gradually appearing throughout Surrey from June until the end of August. A specially designed app, is free to download and allows you to ‘check in’ to each cow as it’s found. Discover lots about each cow, win rosettes, take part in quizzes and much more. Those who find the most cows will be entered into a prize draw to win a luxury Kuoni holiday for two to Mauritius!
The autumn will see the cows auctioned off for charity. Each cow sponsor gets to choose a charity of their own to benefit from half of the auction proceeds, with the other 50 per cent going to the Surrey Hills Trust Fund, established in partnership with the Community Foundation for Surrey to conserve and protect the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The fund supports local community projects and enterprise schemes that benefit and enhance the Surrey Hills.
