CHILDREN were treated to craft activities, face painting, balloon twisting and farm animals at a Kingsley fundraiser for the Perth Weekend to End Women's Cancers.

Community group Leanne’s Wish, which was launched in memory of 36-year-old mum Leanne Russo who died of breast cancer earlier this year, held three sessions at the Meerilinga Children and Family Centre on October 1.

Fellow St Luke’s Catholic Primary School mums, family and friends raised about $20,000 for the National Breast Cancer Foundation at the Mother’s Day Classic in May.

They look likely to raise another $30,000 for The Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research, with 14 walkers to tackle the 2016 Perth Weekend to End Women’s Cancers in Leanne’s name.

This month’s fundraising drive for the April 2016 walk also included a bouncy castle and a sausage sizzle.
