Cordalba Christmas lights raise funds for local school

With the hope of spreading plenty of joy this Christmas while raising funds, Cordalba resident Angela Myers has opened her light display to the public to walk through.

The display at 14 Leonard Court, Cordalba is made up of thousands of lights, with 5000 making up the candy cane lane alone.

A gold coin donation is all you need to enter the interactive display, with all funds raised going towards Cordalba State School.

The display is so comprehensive that children are challenged to search for different items throughout the twinkling decorations.

Angela said since moving to the region four years ago she had set up lights and continued to build on the display year after year.

“We have always done lights and when someone asked if I was going to charge for entry, I thought about it and thought it is an opportunity to raise money for the local state school,” Angela said.

“Each night we see more and more people come and visit the display.”

After another big year of many changes, Angela said the joy that the lights had brought to people and seeing the looks on their faces made the set up worthwhile.

“People ask me why I do it, and I do it because of the joy it brings to everyone, adults and children alike,” she said.

“It is so nice to see the faces on the little kids when they run through and see all the different lights and look so excited.

“The students who have come to visit love the lights and go 'round and 'round a couple of times.

Angela said she was happy to have an opportunity to fundraise for the school and thanked everyone who had visited and made a donation so far.

“Thank you to everyone who has visited and made a donation that will go back to the school,” she said.

Cordalba State School have also been fantastic with helping to print flyers and spread the word about the display.”

The display is open nightly, except Saturdays, from 6.30 pm up until Christmas Eve.
