Procap sea of lights

© Picture: Eve Kohler (

To show support for disabled people, there is to be a blaze of several thousand lights on the Bundesplatz

Procap, Switzerland’s largest self-help organisation for the disabled, will be converting the Bundesplatz into a sea of lights. With your help, at dusk (about 21.00), the Bundesplatz will be set ablaze with the glow of thousands of coloured lights. The coloured holders and night-lights are available in advance for 5 francs from the Loeb department store and from the chemist’s at the station.

On 1st August the lights will be on sale from 9.30 from the Information Point on the Münsterplatz and from 14.00 on the Bundesplatz itself. The proceeds from the sale of lights will help to fund Procap’s activities for disabled people in the canton of Bern. .
