Christmas cheer for charity
Entry is free, although donations are very much welcomed! All money raised over the 5-week period are split between three wonderful charities:
- Red Nose is dedicated to saving the lives of babies and children and supporting people impacted by the death of a child.
- The Humpty Dumpty Foundation raises money to purchase vital children’s medical equipment for over 380 children’s hospitals and health service centres across Australia
- Cure Brain Cancer Foundation is dedicated to accelerating the development of new treatments to increase five-year to survival from the current 20% to 50% by 2023.
Last year, $12,000 was raised and split equally between the three charities.
Supporting the community
Michelle Stewart, Former CEO of Cure Brain Cancer Foundation commented, ‘The Cambage Court Christmas Lights display is a beautiful example of a family doing something a little different to raise funds and awareness to help find a cure for brain cancer. My family and I are regular visitors to Michael’s incredible display, and they always do an amazing job. Cure Brain Cancer Foundation are so grateful for the family’s ongoing support.’
Michael Grey is the organiser of the display, and says: ‘The display is not just about providing an amount to charities although important but about providing the community of all ages with a strong experience of joy and pleasure and providing them with entertainment at Christmas.’
Scott and Mara are Davidson locals, and say, ‘In our community of Davidson, Michael and his family are literally shining examples of all that is good and true about Christmas. The lights shine not for selfish reasons but for others who arrive by bus and car to enjoy and take part in the Christmas spirit. Those who are less fortunate are not forgotten as Michael and his family raise money for charities such as SIDS and Kids, Humpty Dumpty Foundation and Cure Brain Cancer Foundation. Michael’s Christmas lights spectacular shines a beam of Christmas spirit in our local community and typifies all that is good about this special time of year’.
