Call for sponsors

Date published: 1 October 2023

Over the summer of 2024, Southampton Hospitals Charity will be lighting up the South with a large-scale public art event that promises to captivate your senses and ignite your imagination.

Light the South is about partnerships. We’ll be bringing together the business and creative sectors, inspiring local communities, and schools to illuminate our city with the transformative power of creativity, weaving together the threads of culture, heritage, and diversity.

An opportunity not to be missed!

There are a range of sponsorship packages available and we are inviting local businesses to come on board and partner with us. This will provide you and your business with fantastic opportunities to build your profile and engage with your stakeholders in a fun and creative way. Supporting Light the South will inspire employee engagement and community spirit.

Our sponsorship packages offer an excellent return on your investment. And of course, you’ll be supporting Southampton Children’s Hospital and all the young patients and their families from across the south coast.

Red Funnel CEO, Fran Collins, said,

“Red Funnel is immensely proud to be sponsoring the Light the South art trail to support Southampton Hospitals Charity. It is extremely important to us that we make a meaningful and positive difference in our local community, and I’m delighted that money raised will support Southampton Children’s Hospital.

Not only does the hospital treat and care for children from both the communities we serve in Southampton and the Isle of Wight, but also the families of our 460 employees.


“For me personally, I think Light the South is going to be a fantastic way of supporting employee engagement and give us a different way to communicate and engage with our customers and stakeholders and I can’t wait to see what the next year has in store for Red Funnel and our partnership with Southampton Hospitals Charity.”
