The Lighthouse trail

Clan Cancer Support, in partnership with Wild in Art, shone a light across the north-east, Moray, Orkney and Shetland with ‘Light the North’ the lighthouse trail from 9 August to 17 October 2021. It was the latest art sculpture trail in Scotland following on from Oor Wullie to inspire artists, school and the public from across the country while raising fund for Clan Cancer Support.

The sculpture trail drew people to explore, not only in Aberdeen, but the surrounding communities, Moray and the northern isles to see over forty-five 2.5m tall lighthouses, which were designed by some of the UK’s most talented artists. This event was made more special as the trail was present in each of the areas that Clan Cancer Support operates. Since 1983, Clan has supported anyone affected by cancer, providing emotional and practical support to ensure those peoples wellbeing needs are being taken care of at all states of the cancer journey.

At the end of the trail, each of the lighthouse sculptures were auctioned off raising £324,200 for Clan Cancer Support. Find out more about the Clan Cancer Support.
