Win a cruise by designing a lighthouse

Date published: 26 January 2024

We’re thrilled to announce our new sponsor, Fred Olsen Cruises, for the 2024 Light in the South art trail, illuminating Southampton and the surrounding areas throughout the summer.

But first, we need your help to design our lighthouse, which will be one of 40 hand-painted, 8ft tall sculptures placed around Southampton and Cowes from July to September, in aid of Southampton Hospitals Charity.

During the trail, we will be raising vital funds for Southampton Children’s Hospital – one of the top three paediatric centres across the country. It cares for babies, children and young people across the south of England, providing 27 different specialist services on site including children’s heart surgery, neuro, cancer, trauma and intensive care.

For each design we receive, Fred Olsen Cruises will donate £5 to Southampton Hospitals Charity. And what’s more, the winning designer will receive a cruise for two on Borealis’ Dutch Tulips and Waterways in Five Nights on 2 May.
