A family home in Weston, near Crewe has once again been transformed into a Winter Wonderland to raise money for The Donna Louise Hospice.
For the sixth year, Carters Green Farm in Weston has been decorated with tens of thousands of twinkling lights and decorations by Graham Witter and his family, in memory of Graham’s sister Jessica.
Graham has spent months planning, preparing and organising this year’s display, which is bigger and better than ever before. And on Saturday (1st December) his hard work paid off as he unveiled and switched-on the 2018 display for the first time.
Everyone is welcome to visit the Weston Christmas Light display this December, where they’ll be able to visit Santa’s Grotto, indulge in a #festiveicecream and have a #sleighselfie with Santa, not forgetting having photo’s at the magnificent light display.
Graham said “It takes a lot of planning to make sure everything is in place and I love adding more lights to the display each year and coming up with new creative ideas. This year there are loads of new decorations and lights, including a much-bigger animated North-Pole village.
“Seeing everyone enjoying the display and watching the children’s faces light up when they meet Santa is just magical and makes the months of hard work worthwhile. I hope the local community will come along to enjoy this year’s light display, it doesn’t cost anything to visit, we just ask for a donation to our chosen charity, The Donna Louise, a place which is close to mine and my family’s hearts
Graham first started the display five years ago to raise money for The Donna Louise where his sister received respite care. In that time he’s raised an incredible £65,500 to help local children and young people with life-limiting conditions, who are supported by the Hospice.
He added, “I feel proud to continue this festive fundraiser in Jessica’s memory and know she would have laughed and smiled at all these magical lights and decorations.”
The Weston Christmas Light Display will shine bright every evening until 28th December, from 6.15pm – 9pm, at Carters Green Farm, Jack Lane, Weston, CW2 5LE. Santa will be there every Friday, Saturday, Sunday evening and each night the last week before Christmas. Everyone’s welcome!
