Wroxham Barns are delighted to be taking part in the 2018 Go Go Hares Norfolk Sculpture Trail from 24th June to 8th September as 2018 brings a trail of 68 beautiful, individually painted Hares to Norfolk in support of Norfolk Charity Break to represent the year Break was founded in 1968 and their 50 years supporting vulnerable children, young people and families.  We’ll be getting our very own Hare to join the Wroxham Barns family. 

Break is our chosen Charity for 2018/19 and we’re very proud to be taking part and supporting their work to help children with disabilities, young people in care and families who need support, believing that every child and young person has the right to a home where they feel safe and love to grow in confidence and look to the future with hope.

Our Go Go Hare’s name is Betsy – chosen by Diane Pearson – honouring Elizabeth Fry, born in Norwich on 21st May 1780 and known as “the Angel of Prisons” as she fought for legislation for humane treatment of prisoners.  We can’t wait to welcome her to Wroxham Barns where she’ll meet our other resident ladies, Cammi and Harriet, from previous Go Go campaigns.

Betsy has a BIG personality.  She’s Norfolk born and bred and passionate about the Norfolk countryside, loves the wide-open skies and cornfields and her local knowledge will help to keep alive those Norfolk traditions. She’s a genteel lady who likes her home comforts and a quiet life but she still loves to meet people and she’s so excited to be coming to Wroxham Barns; just a hop, skip and a jump from the Broads.
