A north-east charity is reigniting a fundraising plan to support those affected by cancer with an art sculpture trail across the north-east and Northern Isles.
The lighthouse trail organised by Clan Cancer Support and Wild in Art was due to take place this month but was cancelled due to the pandemic. It has now been rescheduled for March to May.
Wild in Art has been behind some of the most popular art sculpture trails across the world in the past decade.
Following on from the success of the Wild Dolphin Trail and last year’s Oor Wullie Trail, Light the North will feature more than 50 lighthouse sculptures designed and created by some of the UK’s most talented artists.
Charlie Langhorne, Wild in Art’s managing director, said: “The new dates allow us more time to enjoy the anticipation of next year’s trail.”
The money raised from auctioning off the 2.5m high artworks will help support Aberdeen-based charity Clan.
Fiona Fernie, the organisation’s head of business development, added: “We made the difficult decision to postpone Light the North in April to ensure the safety of artists, volunteers and the general public taking part in the trail.
“The lighthouse trail is such an interactive event, and we want people to get out and enjoy all that the north-east and Northern Isles have to offer helping to support the local communities which Clan operates in.”
