“We are so grateful to everyone who sponsored sculptures during the ‘Light the North’ project, including our friends at AAB and AABIE who generously supported three ‘Little Lights’ school programme sculptures and the large lighthouse, ‘Shimmering Shoal’ by Louise Kirby, which was housed in the Rose Garden at Seaton Park.
It is generosity and support such as this that enabled the 10-week trail, farewell weekend and auction finale, which went on to raise over £320,000 for Clan. To see how the people of Scotland took the trail to their hearts and the resulting funds it raised is something that the Clan team will not forget and are very grateful for.
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 which is exactly what the incredible funds raised from the project will do. We want to thank everyone involved in making the trail, farewell weekend, and auction possible. These vital funds will help people live with and beyond their or their loved one’s cancer diagnosis and improve the quality of life for all those who turn to us for support.” Fiona Fernie, Clan’s Head of Income Generation and Business Development and Project Director for Light the North
