Isle of Man Newspapers announced as a Media Partner for The Big Splash

Hospice Isle of Man are delighted to announce that Isle of Man Newspapers have partnered up with The Big Splash to support the 2022 Wild in Art trail, as a media partner. This is the largest mass participation art event to ever come to the Isle of Man and will see a trail of 30 life size Dolphins on a public art trail live around the Island for 12 weeks from May – September 2022.

Isle of Man Newspapers, who were involved in the Wallabies Gone Wild trail in 2019, are very excited to be involved again and look forward to working with Hospice on one of the biggest participation events to be held on the Island.

Trudi Williams, Vice Chairman of Isle of Man Newspapers said “We are honoured to be able to support Hospice Isle of Man with their Big Splash campaign again. It’s a worthy cause and something that is very close to our hearts. As media partners, we will ensure Hospice Isle of Man receives good coverage so we are all are kept up to date throughout the whole campaign. We want to encourage everyone to be as actively invested in The Big Splash as possible to give this charity all the recognition it deserves”.

Chief Executive of Hospice Isle of Man, Anne Mills said “We are thrilled that Isle of Man Newspapers would once again like to support our Wild in Art trail. As one of our media partners, we look forward to working together as we spread the word about our exciting trail.

We are very grateful for the support we have received from businesses such as the Isle of Man Newspapers, as it ensures our trail will be the same massive success that Wallabies Gone Wild was in 2019, and makes sure we can continue to raise awareness of the services our Hospice provides for people at the end of their life.”

More than 30 individually designed ‘life sized’ dolphin sculptures along with 30 baby dolphins (Caves) will form a trail of discovery across the Island next spring, encouraging residents and visitors alike to explore our environment from an exciting new perspective – whilst promoting our Biosphere, wellbeing and active lifestyles.

Each of these sculptures will be sponsored by local businesses who will benefit from an exciting range of PR and media opportunities prior to and throughout the trail itself. The Big Splash project has over 25 schools from across the Island working with our Education team on the Environment and will help to design one of the baby dolphins which form part of the Trail in 2022.

There are only a few remaining dolphin sculptures which are available to sponsor so to find out more about these, please visit or email
