LIGHT UP THE FU­TURE

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Front Page -

HOUSE­HOLDS around Perth will be shin­ing bright this fes­tive sea­son as part of the Princess Mar­garet Hos­pi­tal Foun­da­tion’s Christ­mas Lights cam­paign.

Now in its 12th year, the cam­paign raises money for PMH Foun­da­tion to sup­port re­search and equip­ment at the hos­pi­tal.

More than 50 home­own­ers around WA helped to raise $98,997 last year by dec­o­rat­ing their front yards with ev­ery­thing from fairy lights to rein­deers and na­tiv­ity scenes.

This year, even more fam­i­lies have reg­is­tered to take part in the cam­paign, light­ing up homes from Ger­ald­ton to Meadow Springs.

PMH Foun­da­tion chief ex­ec­u­tive Denys Pearce said the Christ­mas Lights cam­paign had be­come a favourite on the Foun­da­tion’s an­nual fundrais­ing cal­en­dar.

“What’s not to love about Christ­mas Lights; it’s a unique cam­paign that brings so much joy for both the young and young at heart each year,” he said.

“By at­tend­ing any of the reg­is­tered Christ­mas Lights homes and mak­ing a do­na­tion, you’re giv­ing an in­cred­i­bly spe­cial Christ­mas gift to all the chil­dren at PMH.”

The cam­paign will run from De­cem­ber 1 to 31.
