Light the North Trail Installation Volunteers

  • VO87670


Clan Cancer Support, in partnership with Wild in Art, is set to shine a light across the north-east, Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire, Moray, Orkney and Shetland with ‘Light the North’ the lighthouse trail in Autumn 2021. This is 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 vital funds for Clan Cancer Support. At the end of trail, each of the lighthouse sculptures will be auctioned off and the funds raised will help Clan to support even more people affected by cancer.

In the lead up to and during the trail, we have various volunteer opportunities available. This includes assisting as a Light the North Trail Installation Volunteer. Preparing the sculptures and installing them on the trail is the most critical part of Light the North. Without this, there is no trail! You’ll be working alongside the Light the North Project Team and our logistics partner, Colin Lawson Transport, to get the sculptures to their locations and looking their best! Once the trail is over you’ll be helping to remove them from the streets, ensuring their location is left spotless! You will help us to keep the public safe during installation and removal, help to ensure that surfaces are level, and help with attaching information plaques. Please note this role does involve being outdoors and walking/standing for periods of time.

If you are interested and available to help out, we would be so grateful to have your support. Please follow this link to sign up for any days and times that you would be able to help:
