A nice night for a walk
AROUND 70 people turned Numurkah's streets into beacons of twinkling lights on Friday evening, when people gathered for Light the Night.
Leukaemia Foundation fundraising event organiser Darryl Pickering said the night raised around $3,000 for blood cancer.
He said people had come from across the district, including Nathalia and Cobram, and there were others visiting from Phillip Island and Cranbourne, to take part in the town walk.
