Special walk lights memories of loved ones

South Western Times

Despite the cold, wind and rain, 180 people banded together on Friday night to raise more than $11,000 for the Leukaemia Foundation at Friday’s annual Light the Night Walk.

The crowd gathered at the Bunbury and District Power Boat Club and were entertained by singer and songwriter, Tori-Rae Davies, whose rendition of the Birds of Tokyo’s Lanterns prior to the walk “bought a tear to many an eye” according to event host Elizabeth Hovey.

Children were delighted with a surprise visit by GWN 7’s Doopa Dog and Fairy Godmother Betty McCleary.

Despite the unpleasant conditions, the crowd set off around the Leschenault Inlet proudly carrying their coloured lanterns in support of those touched by blood cancers.
