1,000 Paper Cranes For Brain Cancer Project

9 December 2016

The City of Melville is working with the community on the 1,000 Paper Cranes For Brain Cancer Project.

The purpose is to raise public awareness of brain cancer and provide the brain cancer community and the broader community with an enjoyable entertainment experience.

Brain cancer is the biggest killer of children under 14 and the biggest cancer killer of adults under 40.

You can help this very worthy project in several ways:

  • Right now, until Sunday 19th March 2017, hundreds of individuals, community groups and schools are making thousands of Paper Cranes For Brain Cancer. Join in! Go to
  • Second, come along to the whole of community 1,000 Paper Cranes Community Picnic and Fun Day on Sunday 19th March. The event will take place between 12pm – 5pm at Piney Lakes Reserve, Murdoch Drive, Winthrop. Entry is free and there will be a full stage program and lots of “Have a Go" activities for adults and children. Help create the 1,000 Paper Cranes For Brain Cancer community artwork from all the paper cranes. Delicious food will be available, prepared by brain cancer support community groups. For more information about the event go to
  • Third, all types of volunteers are required for the event. Contact Brian Marshall, City of Melville Neighbourhood Development Officer to express your interest. Persons with an education background to assist with Have A Go Activities are particularly sought.
