Call for Bidders For Forever Homes In Lighthouse Auction Finale

Local Cancer Charity Calls On Bidders For Forever Homes In Lighthouse Auction Finale

Clan Cancer Support is today (Tuesday 28th September) calling on bidders to support its auction finale on Monday 1st November. The legacy of the recent Light the North lighthouse trail will continue when all 50 large lighthouse sculptures and 8 small lighthouses take centre stage in the grand finale at Thainstone Exchange, Inverurie which will be both an in-person and on-line live event. The auction is supported by the ANM Group.

Fiona Fernie, Clan’s Head of Income Generation and Business Development and Project Director for Light the North, says,

“The 10-week ‘Light the North’ lighthouse trail, in partnership with Wild in Art, has been embraced by the people of the North-east – individuals, families, artists, local businesses, community groups & schools have all been fully immersed in this colourful, exciting trail across the country whilst raising funds for Clan Cancer Support.

Fiona continues, “The lighthouse sculptures each represent a safe haven, a beacon in a storm, navigation through troubled waters – all very much aligned with Clan’s aims. They now hold a special place in the heart of the artists who created them, the people who have visited them and Clan’s service users who will ultimately benefit from them. Cancer patients have been particularly hard hit during the pandemic due to delays in diagnosis and treatment. Clan has helped people live with and beyond a cancer diagnosis for over 38 years, but we need the support of projects and events such as ‘Light the North’ to continue being here for them and to support even more people affected by cancer.”

Fiona concludes, “Whether it’s to brighten your office, make a statement in your garden or to give someone special the ultimate surprise gift, bidders will continue this legacy and the funds raised from the auction will go on to aid essential cancer support services for people, right in the heart of our communities all across the North-east. We can’t wait to see where these very special sculptures will end their journey and look forward to the excitement of the in-person and on-line bids coming on the 1st November.”

All of the sculptures available for bidding can be viewed in-person ahead of the auction at the ‘Light the North’ Farewell Weekend from 29 – 31st September at the Gordon Barracks in Bridge of Don: https://www.lightthenorth.co.uk/event/farewell-weekend/
