I’d like to thank everyone who supported the Leukaemia Foundation’s recent Light the Night fundraising walk in Old Bar.

By raising money, carrying a lantern or donating, you’ve shined a light on families facing blood cancer, showing them they’re not alone even in their darkest hour.

The Leukaemia Foundation provides families with blood cancer with emotional and practical support, information and educational resources to beat blood cancer.

Over $4300 has been raised by the wonderful Old Bar community!

Thanks to you, patients will receive transport to and from medical appointments, hundreds of regional families will be provided with free home-away-from-home accommodation near their treating centres and you are helping more Australians with blood cancer survive and live a better quality of life.

Thank you for your support as together we will be there to provide every family with the support services they need to beat their blood cancer.

With your help we’re lighting the way forward.

Bill Petch
