Mid and East Antrim Borough Mayor, Councillor Billy Ashe said: "We are joining more than 70 buildings to shine gold to support the Childhood Cancer Foundation's campaign.

"We were asked to help shine a light to reflect on the bravery of children in treatment, honour those who survived and to remember those who tragically didn’t and were happy to do so."

CLIC Sargent, one of the UK's leading cancer charity for children and young people and their families is a local partner for the initiative along with the Childhood Cancer Foundation and Cancer Fund for Children.
