The residents of Consulate Court, Thornlie are once again lighting their houses for Christmas and in turn helping raise vital funds for childhood cancer research.
Each December the residents of Consulate Court ‘light up’ their street to celebrate Christmas and to spread joy amongst the community and the thousands of visitors the street attracts throughout the month.
Consulate Court, Thornlie is a well-known Christmas Lights Street in Perth. Residents have been ‘lighting up’ on December 1st each year for the past 28 years. This year nine houses in the Cul-de-sac are lit including new residents to the street getting into the spirit of the event. Our displays are very interactive with musical toys, laser light shows, bubble machines and dancing snowmen all designed for kids and adults alike to leave with a smile on their face!
Decorated homes carry donation collection points for those visitors wishing to show support to our chosen charity partner. This year all funds raised go directly to the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (CLCRF), helping to fund vital research and supporting families affected.
The Consulate Court displays run every night December 1 -25 from 7.30-10pm each evening. The street hosts special events throughout the month including Christmas Carols, Bake Sales and other events. On December 11, CLCRF volunteers will be in place as the street hosts a visit from 20 different costume characters and Santa on a fire truck. All events are promoted via social media at https://www.facebook.com/consulatecourtlights
The street has won the City of Gosnells ‘Safe City’ award numerous times and has collected for charity over the past thirteen years, with approx. $200,000 being donated to charities during this time.
