Our Office Mascots
EMG Solicitors are proud to be supporters of the Wild in Art sculpture trails which raise money for St Oswald’s Hospice. We have supported the trails since 2016 and have three sculptures in our offices.
Spocky Dog – Durham Office
Meet Spocky, our Deep Space Canine. Spocky lives in our offices in Durham and was designed and created by artist Hilary Sanderson for the Great North Snowdogs Trail in 2016.
Spocky has been on many adventures and was first exhibited as part of the Snowdogs trail before being won at auction by our Managing Director, Emma Gaudern, to raise funds in aid of St Oswald’s Hospice. Emma was a big fan of the Great North Snowdog trail and after seeing over forty of the dogs out and about in the region with her family, was sold on having one for our business. Lucky for us, Spocky was beamed up and lives with us here in his ‘furever’ home!
Summer Flowers Elmer – Gosforth Office
Meet Summer Flowers, part of Elmer’s Great North Parade 2019 in aid of St Oswald’s. Created by artist Emily Ward and is inspired by the bright, colourful and beautiful flowers which can be found in meadows around the North East.
Throughout Elmer’s Great North Parade 2019, ‘Summer Flowers’ lived on Gosforth High Street (on the lovely grassy knoll, right next to our office). ‘Summer Flowers’ was visited and enjoyed by our whole community. When the trail ended ‘Summer Flowers’ came to live in our Gosforth office and spends her days bringing joy to both our staff as well as everyone that passes by our office.
Ram-bler – Penrith Office
Say hello to Ram-bler, our latest office mascot designed and created by Kendal artist, Evelyn Sinclair, for the Shaun the Sheep on the Tyne Art Trail in 2023.
Inspired by the opening of our office in Cumbria and Shaun the Sheep’s love of adventure, Ram-bler, is the perfect addition to our four-legged friends. During the St Oswald’s Hospice art trail, he lived on Grey Street for all to enjoy. With his hiking boots, binoculars and map at the ready, Ram-bler set off on his travels after the trail to join us in his forever home in our Penrith office.
