Southampton Hosptials Charity

How it works… shining a light

Over the summer of 2024 there will be 40 8ft magnificent lighthouse sculptures on display throughout Southampton and Cowes. We are inviting our business community to come on board and partner with us by sponsoring a sculpture that will be on display for eight weeks.

As an official sponsor, you will select an artist’s unique design idea to be featured on your dedicated sculpture and to promote your brand on the sculpture plinths, Trail Map and App, ensuring high visibility with hundreds of thousands of trail visitors.

Together, let’s create an unforgettable spectacle of creativity and unity.

Be part of a truly amazing event

“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.

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.”

Fran Collins – Chief Executive Officer, Red Funnel, and Light the South Presenting Partner.
