KIND-hearted neighbours in Moreton will switch on their Christmas lights for a 15th time in aid of Claire House later this week. 

For the last 14 years residents in Amberley Close have created a winter wonderland that has, so far, raised more than £10,000 for the hospice.

They will switch on the lights again this Friday (November 30) at 6.30pm.

The idea of lighting up their homes for charity was started by Karen and Frank Williams and next-door neighbours Peter and Sandra George.

They have been switching the lights on for years.

But it is only in the last 13 years that they have done so for Claire House.

Thanks to the public's generosity, the charitable neighbours have managed to raised more than £10,000 in aid of the hospice's work. 

Prior to the switch-on Karen Williams told the Globe: "It's all for a fantastic cause.

"We always like to add something new to the display.

"The idea behind the lights switch-on started because each morning I'd come out after the lights had been switched on and there'd be little money bags on the step.

"So I thought 'well someone might as well make money out of this, so why not do it for Claire House'.

"We don't ask people to put money in, just to come and enjoy the lights display.

"I'm just quite happy to see the kids' faces."

Younger visitors will also be able to leave a message for Father Christmas in a special post box.

Karen continued: "Put the letter in the box. Remember to include your child's name and address on the letter and they’ll get a letter from Santa.

"Just keep going and help us beat last year's total."
