Dales Marine Services supports local charity CLAN Cancer Support ‘Light the North’
Dales Marine Services Ltd is delighted to be sponsoring a Lighthouse as part of CLAN's 'Light the North' fundraising initiative. Dales is working with a local artist to create the Dales Marine Lighthouse which will form part of the trail of lighthouses situated across the North East and the Northern Isles from March 2021 to the end May 2021.
Dales Marine Services operates from five dry dock facilities in Scotland including Aberdeen, Greenock, Leith, Troon and Grangemouth; we have been supporting the UK maritime sector since 1996 with dry dock facilities and alongside services.
As part of the 'Light the North' event, Dales Marine has partnered with Maureen King a local illustrator and artist based in Forfar Scotland who is already busy in her studio illustrating the Dales Marine Lighthouse. As part of the event, local schools will also be getting involved with pupils having an opportunity to get creative and decorate their version of the "Light the North" lighthouse for the school.
Michael Milne, Dales Marine Services Managing Director, said: "Lighthouses are critical to our coastline providing an essential service to all those vessels at sea, whom we support. By sponsoring a Lighthouse, we will help towards CLAN's fundraising. It is a privilege to be supporting CLAN and what better way of showing our support than through a Lighthouse, which helps to navigate you through adversities and challenges to a safe place."
As a local Scottish company, Dales Marine strives to support communities and charities surrounding each of its dry dock facilities; and are thrilled to be part of the 2021 Light the North initiative, helping CLAN to light up the region with lighthouses and raise funds for the charity.
