Hospice Isle of Man are delighted to announce that local outsourcing company CSG has partnered up with The Big Splash to support the Wild in Art trail in 2022 as a large sculpture sponsor.
The Big Splash is the largest mass participation art event to ever come to the Isle of Man and will see a trail of over 30 life size Dolphins take centre stage on a public art trail live around the Island for 12 weeks from May – September 2022.
CSG have been long term supporters of Hospice Isle of Man and in particular Rebecca House and are delighted to be able to get involved with the next Wild in Art trail.
Lisa Rowe, CEO of CSG said, “We are delighted to be involved with the Wild in Art Trail this summer. For a number of years, Rebecca House has been our chosen charity and we arrange a number of activities in the year to support fundraising efforts. It is an opportunity for us to mark Rebecca House’s 15 year anniversary and be involved with this tremendous initiative and we can’t wait to see our chosen design on one of these beautiful dolphins.”
Chief Executive of Hospice Isle of Man, Anne Mills said, “We are very grateful to CSG for choosing to support The Big Splash in 2022. By backing the Wild in Art Trail, the team will help ensure that this event goes on to raise significant funds for patient care and our vital business services.
We can’t wait to see the Island brought to life by our pod of beautiful dolphins. They are being painted by our talented artists as we speak, and we are beyond excited to see the finished sculptures!”
More than 30 individually designed ‘life sized’ dolphin sculptures along with over 40 baby dolphins (Calves) will form a trail of discovery across the Island this year, encouraging residents and visitors alike to explore our environment from an exciting new perspective – whilst promoting our Biosphere, wellbeing and active lifestyles.
Each of these sculptures will be sponsored by local businesses who will benefit from an exciting range of PR and media opportunities prior to and throughout the trail itself. The Big Splash project has over 30 schools from across the Island working with our Education team on the Environment and will help to design one of the baby dolphins which form part of the Trail in 2022.
