The ‘Weston Charity Christmas Light Display’ takes place at Carters Green Farm, Jack Lane, Weston, Crewe every day until Sunday 28th December 2014 (6:15pm to 9:00pm).
Graham Witter, who is a BA (Hons) Business Management student at Manchester Metropolitan University (Cheshire Campus), has setup hundreds of lights at Carters Green Farm to raise money for charity. He started to install the lights in mid-October and ninety plugs are required to hook up all the displays to the electricity supply. The display covers farm buildings and their adjacent yard and contains a combination of rope lights, LED lights, animated 3D figures, 3D inflatables, together with background Christmas music. There is even a small wooden Santa’s Grotto with ramp access.
For the second year running he is raising money for The Donna Louise Children's Hospice http://www.donnalouisetrust.org/ . Last year he raised £1,000 for the charity and the money was used to help refurbish the children’s bedrooms.
Graham said, “My sister uses The Donna Louise Children's Hospice for respite care so I know what a fantastic job they do. My displays are even bigger than last year and I would like as many people as possible to visit. I'd like to raise £2,000 this year and double the amount raised for the charity last year. I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. "
To visit the display if heading from Crewe turn right off Weston Road (just after Crewe Hall) into Main Road towards Weston, then left into Jack Lane. If heading from Weston go over the A500 bypass bridge on Main Road and turn right in Jack Lane. >From both directions look out for the ‘Charity Christmas Light Display 6.15-9pm’ arrow signs at the end of Jack Lane.
