Council facilities to be lit gold in support of childhood cancer awareness

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

Published: 14th September 2015

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council is lighting Enniskillen Castle and the Tree Lines sculpture at Strule Arts Centre, Omagh, gold on Thursday 17 September 2015 to mark Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

The two Council facilities will be illuminated gold, the official colour for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, on September 17, as part of the international ‘Light It Up Gold’ campaign.

‘Light It Up Gold’ originated in the United States of America and is organised locally by the Childhood Cancer Foundation, in collaboration with Cancer Fund for Children and CLIC Sargent. The campaign aims to raise awareness of childhood cancer and shine a light on the bravery of children dealing with it.

Enniskillen Castle and the Tree Lines sculpture at Strule Arts Centre are just two of a number of iconic properties and landmarks that will be illuminated gold across Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland in September as part of the Childhood Cancer Foundation’s ‘Light It Up Gold’ campaign.

The lighting up of Council facilities to mark dates of significance is just one way in which the Council may provide support to a particular charity. Enquiries regarding illuminating Council properties and charity support should be made to Louise McLaughlin, Community Services, Fermanagh and Omagh District Council by telephoning 0300 303 1777 or emailing louise.mclaughlin@fermanaghomagh.com.
