Tyne Tail Jack

The design was inspired by artist Corinne's love for the North East. It celebrates the Newcastle and Gateshead Quayside and all of the architectural structures that she enjoys and visits regularly. Corinne also loves the Angel of the North and wanted to create a design that would capture people’s imaginations. She loves the thought that the Angel of the North has a secret life where it is able to fly away and be free, enjoying views from the sky and zooming around the North East. The magic of the Angel of the North is combines with some word clouds which highlight words that she feels symbolise the magic of the North East.

After meeting the little boy Jack, the artist renamed the Snowdog from Flying Angels to it's present name; Tyne Tail Jack.

The North of England P&I Association Limited, based on Newcastle Quayside have given Tyne Tail Jack a new home. Tyne Tail Jack celebrates the Newcastle and Gateshead Quayside and was originally sponsored on the trail by his new owners.

Kim Heaselden, Senior Executive (Communications) at The North of England P&I Association said:

“Our company always intended to purchase Tyne Tail Jack after sponsoring him on the trail. A lot of our members of staff have had first hand experience of the care St Oswald’s provides so the campaign was perfect for us to support. Tyne Tail jack is currently on a mini tour of the North East! Since December he has been visiting various schools in the region including Percy Hedley School and King’s Priory in Tynemouth. He will also be visiting St Patrick’s in Dipton soon. Tyne Tail Jack spent Christmas on the Children’s Ward at Northumbria hospital which brought a lot of Christmas cheer. Our Snowdog is proving to be very popular and the children at the schools and the hospital have enjoyed his visits.”

Kim ended:

“The trail was a fantastic initiative for the region and we were pleased to support it. We are now delighted that Tyne Tail Jack can continue visiting schools around the region so a lot more children get the chance to meet him!”
