Story

Cancerkin is linking up with world-renowned light artist Bruce Munro on a light show with a message – a message of hope. Bruce is constructing a modern day beacon, formed from 2730 plastic bottles individually lit in Cancerkin’s colours of pink and blue. Anyone affected by breast cancer can be part of this light show by sponsoring a light, attaching a personal message, helping to illuminate the night with their hopes and supporting Cancerkin’s work with their sponsorship.

  

At five metres wide and three metres high, the installation - called ‘Beacon On The Hill’ - will be placed bottle by bottle on a 288 metre chalk hill near Bath. A huge physical and logistical challenge, it will take a week for a team of five, working in all weathers, to construct this one-off installation, ensuring ‘Beacon’, and all it stands for, can be seen for miles.

Then, on the 24th of November, Beacon on the Hill will be lit up in front of a large crowd of supporters from across the country. The moment will be captured by a series of images, ensuring Beacon on the Hill will continue to be a symbol of hope and unity long after the lights are turned out.
