The limited-edition miniature replicas of the Glaswegian legend, Sir Billy Connolly, are to go on sale at Buchanan Galleries this Saturday (4th September).
The shopping centre unveiled the exclusively commissioned ‘Wee Big Yins’, made using real LEGO® pieces, to celebrate the illustrious career and multi-talents of the iconic star. All the proceeds from the minifigures will be donated to Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity to ensure every baby, child and young person treated at Scotland’s largest children’s hospital receives the extra special care they deserve.
The ‘Wee Big Yins’ will go on sale from 9am until 5pm (or until sold out) on Saturday 4th September, in the centre’s North Atrium, opposite John Lewis. With limited stock, the minifigures will be sold on a first come first serve basis, while stocks last.
500 of the single ‘Funny Yins’ will be available for a minimum £10 donation, and a further 50 full sets of all five ‘Wee Big Yins’ including The Musician Yin, The Biker Yin, The Actor Yin, The Artist Yin and The Funny Yin, will be available for a minimum £50 charity donation.
Kathy Murdoch, Centre Manager, Buchanan Galleries, said: “It’s been an honour to bring the Glaswegian legend to life in miniature form, whilst raising funds for such a worthwhile cause. Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity is very close to our hearts here at Buchanan Galleries which is why 100% of the sales from the ‘Wee Big Yins’ will go to the charity to ensure they can continue to provide their invaluable support to children across Scotland.
“We’ve had a great response from the public following the unveiling of the minifigures and we are really looking forward to seeing shopper’s reactions to the ‘Wee Big Yins’ when they go on sale this Saturday.”
