Gold touch for cancer
ONE thousand gold coloured origami cranes have been folded and strung in the WA Maritime Museum’s foyer in support of Go Gold Australia for Childhood Cancer Awareness month.
WA Museum executive director Dr Ian MacLeod said the cranes would remain at the Fremantle venue throughout September.
“The cranes are, of course, a universal symbol of longevity and were handmade by parents of children with cancer,” MacLeod said.
“This is such a worthy organisation and we have made a donation box available in the museum foyer, which we hope visitors will support.
“All funds raised through this project will be donated to the Kids Cancer Support Group, dedicated to making a difference to the quality of life of children undergoing treatment for cancer at Princess Margaret Hospital.”
