Light up sick bubs’ lives

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - 2016 YOUR GUIDE TO CHRISTMAS -

EACH year, the ar­ray of beau­ti­ful Christ­mas lights on show through­out Perth gets big­ger and bet­ter.

The dis­plays are the end re­sult of a huge ef­fort by house­hold­ers, and some of the vi­su­als are noth­ing short of breath­tak­ing.

This year, you can make a dif­fer­ence to the lives of crit­i­cally ill ba­bies by vis­it­ing one of the beau­ti­ful light shows that have part­nered with the Perth Chil­dren’s Hospi­tal Foun­da­tion (PCHF).

This year, PCHF wants to pur­chase a much-needed New­born Emer­gency Trans­port Ser­vice (NETS) Am­bu­lance which will be used at the new Perth Chil­dren’s Hospi­tal.

Ev­ery year, ap­prox­i­mately 900 sick or preterm ba­bies born in West­ern Aus­tralia need to be trans­ferred to hospi­tal for in­ten­sive care.

The cur­rent NETS am­bu­lance is six years old, and with a new one cost­ing $180,000, your do­na­tion can help fund a re­place­ment.

The full list of Christ­mas light dis­plays where you can do­nate is at right: Au­bin Grove, 267 Lyon Road Au­bin Grove, 180 Lyon Road Au­bin Grove, 11 Ra­di­ata Prom­e­nade Bal­divis, 5 Bren­nan Prom­e­nade Bal­divis, 29, 31, 33, 36, 41 and 45 Her­itage Park Drive Bal­divis, 36 Beck­ing­ham Park­way Fern­dale, 10 Alyxia Place Gosnells, 4 Mat­field Way Ham­mond Park, 354 Wat­tleup Road Ham­mond Park, 27 Baumea Turn Har­ris­dale, 4 Har­ris­dale Drive Hunt­ing­dale, 17 Bo­nanza Court Jan­dakot, 10 The Fair­way Jan­dakot, 7 Ayles­bury Close Meadow Springs, 21 Bam­burgh Turn Port Kennedy, 23 Sala­manca Park­way Se­cret Har­bour, 15 Swan­son Way Spear­wood, 35 Steven­son Way Suc­cess, 10 Ply­mouth Cor­ner Thorn­lie, 72 For­est Cres­cent Wa­roona, 11 Alexan­der Drive Yange­bup, 2, 10, 14, 23, 26, 33, 71 Mud­lark Way Yange­bup, 71 Sand­piper Loop
