PS Ruby to light up red for Cystic Fibrosis

WENTWORTH’S PS Ruby will “glow” red on Friday night in support of Cystic Fibrosis National Awareness Day.

The community will show its support for 65 Roses Day, an annual event which raises awareness for adults and children living with Cystic Fibrosis.

Cystic Fibrosis is an inherited disorder that causes severe damage to the lungs, digestive system and other organs in the body.

In Australia one in 2,500 babies are born with the disorder.

Wentworth Shire Council encourages community members witness the aura of red surrounding the iconic paddle steamer.

The PS Ruby will glow throughout the night from 7:00pm at Fotherby Park in Wentworth.
