Fleet Avenue Shines Bright this Christmas
Christmas is a time of joy and giving. Fleet Avenue Christmas Lights in Jordan Springs does just that, bringing the local community together with their amazing lights display.
With preparations now well underway, the lights will be turned on for all to see on Friday 1st December at 8:00pm.
The ever popular event has been lighting the streets for many years, all whilst raising much needed funds for charity.
Last year would see locals selflessly donate around $3,500, which was donated to the Cancer Council.
1 in 2 Australians will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Cancer Council is a community funded organisation, working in local communities to help support people as they navigate their cancer journey.
“Their work is really important, and I want to do what I can to help. But there is only so much I can do on my own.
“You can help too, by donating to my fundraising page. Any amount you can give makes a difference” said Robert Burns, Organiser of Fleet Avenue Christmas Lights.
This year will see some welcome additions to the colourful display, that are sure to be enjoyed by the hundreds that visit over the festive season.
“We have animated singing faces with music, as well as something exciting. We have added a light up tree” he explained to the Jordan Springs Gazette.
Robert delights in this time of year. So, what does he enjoy most about Christmas?
“It’s definitely seeing the kids enjoy the lights” smiled Robert.
Donations to the Cancer Council can be made through the Burns’ family’s Do It For Cancer fundraising page. There is also a QR code being set up to assist. Details can be found on their social media.
