Great support: More than 50 people walked to support the Leukaemia Foundation, while others waited in the Masonic Lodge preparing the refreshments. Over $900 was raised on the walk.DUSK settled over Bridgetown as the local community supported the Leukaemia Foundation’s annual fundraiser Light the Night twilight walk.
More than 50 people and two dogs supported the cause with ages of the walkers ranging from toddles to over nineties.
With lanterns lit, the walkers set a comfortable pace as they walked from their meeting place at the Masonic Lodge, going south along Hampton Street then, after crossing the main road, they meandered down the ramp to the Geegelup Brook Parkland.
After crossing the brook using the Colin RJ Carlin Bridge, the group turned north to take them behind the town until they reached the footbridge which took them back into town.
The walk was finished back at the Masonic Lodge, where most of the participants enjoyed a well-earned cup of tea and a sausage sizzle.
Organiser Noela Horsley said the evening was just what it was meant to be; a warm and generous gathering of people bringing hope and support to those affected by leukaemia and other related blood disorders.
“We raised a total of $900 so far, with pledges still to come, which is brilliant.” Ms Horsley said. “If anyone else would like to make a donation please call me on 9761 4010, all donations will be used by the Leukaemia Foundation to support those affected by this and other related blood disorders.”
