Consulate Court Christmas Lights Supporting Cystic Fibrosis!
The families from Consulate Court in Thornlie lit up their street for cystic fibrosis (CF) this December, creating explosions of colour and spreading festive joy to the community.
Thanks to the hard work and commitment of these families, an incredible amount of awareness and over $9,311 was raised for CF, brightening all our lives that little bit more!
From remote control drift car showcases and appearances from famous children’s characters, to carolling choirs and a visit from the big guy himself, Santa Claus, this exciting little cul-de-sac in Thornlie had it all this festive season!
Do you know what the best part of all this merry fun was? That it was all in the spirit of raising awareness and funds for families affected by cystic fibrosis in WA!
Through the efforts of everyone involved in this incredible month-long event, over $9,311 was raised, a new fundraising record for Consulate Court. This greatly received donation for Cystic Fibrosis WA (CFWA) will go towards supporting important support services and critical CF research.
Not only did the Consulate Court Christmas lights blow our socks off and draw in crowds from all around Perth, it also placed first in the City of Gosnells Safe City ‘Best Decorated Street’ competition.
This event could not have been possible without the support of several individuals and organisations generously giving their time and energy to bring magic to the street every night. Thank you to the WA Team of Charity Heroes (WATCH) for putting smiles on everyone’s faces with their characters, the City of Gosnells for bringing Santa himself to visit, and the Peppermint Choir for filling the street with the sweet sounds of Christmas carols, what a treat!
A special thank you to Emma, Adam and all the residents of Consulate Court who were involved in putting on this massive month of awareness and fundraising for CF. Thank you to all the volunteers who helped throughout the month including those who were part of the CFWA volunteer team.
