West Perth ed­u­ca­tor and men­tor Di Wil­cox is mak­ing a dif­fer­ence in the lives of count­less chil­dren with The Magic Coat pro­gram.

KEEP an eye out at the cor­ner of Vin­cent and Lof­tus Streets – Ken Sealey’s Be­seech sculpture has been given a sum­mer makeover.

The blue head has turned yel­low to cel­e­brate the launch of the City of Vin­cent’s free out­door events sea­son.

“We reached out to Ken Sealey and he gave us his sup­port to re-imag­ine his art­work with a lick of bright yel­low paint dur­ing our events sea­son,” Mayor Emma Cole said.

“Night or day, the Big Yel­low Head will be ei­ther shin­ing in the sun or glow­ing in the dark.”

There are more than 50 events for lo­cals to take part in across Leed­erville, North Perth, Mt Law­ley, West Perth, North­bridge and Mt Hawthorn.

Mayor Cole said there was a di­verse of­fer­ing of ac­tiv­i­ties to en­ter­tain both kids and adults and make the most of the City’s parks and meet­ing places.

De­cem­ber’s events in­clude Car­ols by Can­dle­light.
