Community lights night
The Busselton community held lanterns high on Saturday night in aid of blood cancer and the Leukaemia Foundation.
Friends and families gathered at the foreshore at sunset to enjoy a picnic and live entertainment from local musician Latehorse.
Vasse MLA Libby Mettam opened the walk with a lantern-lighting community ceremony.
Community host Dawn Blanchard said the event was a big success, raising more than $18,000 for the Leukaemia Foundation.
“We were aiming for a goal of $15,000 so it was a really successful event,” she said.
“It always surprises me how generous our community really are.”
Ms Blanchard thanked Leeuwin Civil and the wider community for their support.
