Stunning lights display in Chickerell raising money for Weldmar

2nd December 2021


Fundraising News

For the second consecutive year, Ross and his family have gone to town when decking out the family home with Christmas lights.

The amazing display at their home in Putton Lane cannot be missed, with light displays on the walls, windows, the fencing, garden, and even along the guttering at the top of the house.

It’s all to raise money for Weldmar Hospicecare.

Ross says, “It was almost exactly a year ago that my dad was being cared for by Weldmar.  He loved his Christmas lights, so the display we did last year was one of the last things he saw before he went into the hospice, where he passed away.”

“It’s important for us to continue supporting Weldmar for anyone else who is in the situation we found ourselves in last year.”

Ross says that the lights have have had a great reaction so far. “It’s been brilliant, kids have been coming by to have a look, and donating in the pots at the front door.  We put it on Facebook, and it’s been shared loads of times, and then re-shared by people we don’t even know who say they’ll come and take a look.”

“We’ve got a reputation for loving Christmas – our friends actually call us Mr and Mrs Christmas!  The inside of the house is all decorated too.  I love the new inflatable Santa and polar bear in the garden, they are probably my favourites!”

Ross and his family are hoping to beat last year’s total of £770 that was collected for Weldmar from their festive lights display.
