THOUSANDS of illuminations have seen a Felpham fundraiser’s home glowing bright for charity.
The 6,000-plus bulbs have brightened up Pam Evans’ front garden for a festive display in aid of St Wilfrid’s Hospice.
She switched them on last Friday in front of a crowd of well-wishers around her Mornington Crescent home and will get them shining until Christmas.
She said: “The switch on was really good and people are turning up all the time to have a look at the lights.
“There are penguins, bears, 12 types of Christmas trees of various designs, Father Christmas and reindeer.”
The display is far bigger than last year’s with its 4,900 lights. Pam hopes the extra lighting will encourage more people to enter her competition to guess the number of individual lights on show.
“A lot of people are queuing up in their cars to look at the lights but are then going away again,” she said.
“It would be good if as many of them as possible entered the competition by December 22 for a £1 donation to help the hospice as much as possible. I’ve got a lot of prizes which have been donated.”
She praised the efforts of Felpham firm of electricians, Allbright. It helped out at the last minute when her solo efforts to install the displays threatened to be derailed by the bad weather.
