Lanterns will illuminate Busselton Foreshore this Saturday night when the Leukaemia Foundation’s Light the Night Walk is held.
Money raised from the event goes towards providing emotional and practical support for local families facing blood cancer.
The night also acts as a ceremony to remember and reflect on those affected by the disease.
Local resident Dawn Blanchard was moved to host an event in Busselton after seeing the support
her relative received from the Leukaemia Foundation.
“Light the Night is a beautiful event that brings people together to show their support of those
touched by blood cancer,” she said.
“The lantern walk is just magic along the jetty, so moving.”
Attendees will hold gold lanterns to remember loved ones lost, white
lanterns if they’ve been diagnosed themselves and blue lanterns will be held by supporters.
The event will also feature family entertainment and live music.
