Fermanagh and Omagh District Council is lighting Enniskillen Castle and the Strule Arts Centre, Omagh, gold on Thursday 1 September 2016 to mark Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

The two Council facilities will be illuminated gold, the official colour for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, on September 1, as part of the Bethany’s Wish – Wilms Tumour Charity’s awareness raising of childhood cancer. Wilm’s tumour is a rare childhood cancer of the kidney. Bethany’s Wish is the only Wilm’s tumour charity in the UK.  It aims to raise awareness of the condition, be a voice for children with cancer, support research and support families.

The lighting up of Council facilities to mark dates of significance is one way in which the Council may provide support to a particular charity.
