Shining Bright for a Good Cause
Oran Park is set to shine this festive season, with the South Circuit Christmas Lights returning for their 5th year in December. The popular local community event also helps to raise funds for charity, and they promise to be bigger and better.
This year will see the lights run every night from the 1st of December, until after Christmas and 8 houses in South Circuit will take part with their displays of varying sizes. We are told that the man in the big, red suit is ready to pay a visit too!
“We have all increased or displays, compared to last year. We are excited to have Santa visiting from the North Pole again on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights in December. We may just have other nights that Santa will make surprise visits leading up to Christmas” said Travis Carstens, South Circuit Christmas Lights Organiser.
“The ladies from Ciao Bella Premium Gelato will also be here on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. We’ll again be selling LED and glow products, with all of the proceeds going directly to the Sydney Children’s Hospital” smiled Travis.
The group raise money for the Sydney Children’s Hospital through the Lights for Kids campaign. This is their 5th year of supporting the hospital and the important work it does to aid sick and injured children.
Their endless hours of hard work have also been rewarded with recent awards for their Christmas lights display.
“We were awarded a Highly Recommended for the Best Street and a Runner Up for the Best Novelty in the 2018 Camden Council Christmas Lights Competition. I also received the Paediatric Unit’s Choice for Best House in the Lights for Kids Competition” Travis explained.
“It really is great to see the community come together and to celebrate the joy of Christmas. It is always a good feeling to see the happiness that we bring to people of all ages at this time of year” he ended.
