KINDNESS SHINING BRIGHT
ANNOUNCED as the highest street fundraiser for the PMH Foundation’s 2013 Christmas Lights campaign, Kanji Loop residents in Atwell are continuing their fundraising efforts this year.
“Last year, we raised $23,000 for the PMH Foundation through gold coin donations and fundraising activities at our street party and we would love to raise even more this year,” Kanji Loop resident Stewart Manson said.
“Nearly our whole street has got involved, which is fantastic.”
Mr Manson said the street held their fourth annual PMH Foundation street party over the weekend, with appearances from Santa and PMH Foundation mascot Stiches the Bear, along with a sausage sizzle, silent auction and raffle.
He said now that a friendly rivalry had been established between neighbours, the light display continued to grow each year with many exciting new attractions.
“The Christmas Lights campaign is a fantastic event which not only brings much joy to WA kids during the festive season, but also helps us to give the children at PMH the best possible level of care,” Mr Manson said.
“Having two young children, one of whom had a minor operation at PMH, made us think it would be a good way to give back to the hospital.”
He said 200 to 300 people came through the street each night, generously donating and purchasing PMH Foundation merchandise.
To help Kanji Loop reach its $36,000 target for 2014, visit the street before December 25 to make your donation.
