Blue valve caps light up Tassie roads

LOCAL residents are being asked to buy Bridgestone’s unique blue valve caps this month to help support the Leukaemia Foundation and the 60,000 Australians currently living with blood cancer.

The specially designed valve caps will be available for sale from Moonah Bridgestone Select until the end of October.

Your purchase will help the Leukaemia Foundation provide life-changing practical and emotional support to the 35 Australians diagnosed each day – from diagnosis, through to treatment and beyond.

Bridgestone has been an avid supporter of the Leukaemia Foundation for more than 30-years and is the principal partner of Light the Night, the Foundation’s annual series of twilight walks.

The Light the Night event sees those in attendance hold gold lanterns to remember loved ones lost to blood cancer and white lanterns if they’ve been diagnosed themselves.

Blue lanterns are proudly raised by friends, family, workmates and the wider community.

“Purchasing blue valve caps is a simple way for members of the community to show their support for Light the Night – a meaningful event for many people facing a blood cancer,” Moonah Bridgestone Select owner Peter Killick said.

“For less than a five-dollar note, you can play a part in creating a brighter future for people with blood cancer and their families – it’s a simple idea that we hope will have a big impact.”

Mr Killick’s Light the Night blue valve caps cost three dollars for a set of four.

Money raised through the sale of the valve caps helps provide emotional and practical support that will light the way forward for people facing a blood cancer diagnosis.
