The project will see 40 larger-than-life pig sculptures on a trail through Ipswich town centre and the Waterfront – they will be joined by 30 “junior” pigs which will be designed by local schools.

St Elizabeth Hospice and Wild in Art are bringing the project to Ipswich, and they have teamed up with Hudson Group to unveil the van.

Steve Flory, director of Hudson Group, said: “Hudson Group is as happy as a pig in mud to be involved in Pigs Gone Wild. We are proud to be sponsors for the trail and we were very happy with our first task of wrapping the promotional van from John Grose.”

Norman Lloyd, Pigs Gone Wild project manager, added: “We are very grateful to the Hudson Group for sponsoring a pig and for wrapping our van so fantastically.”
