A couple have once again decorated their home with festive light displays in the hope of raising more money than ever for the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn.

The home of Tony Fox, and his wife Rosemary, in Clockcase Road, Clenchwarton, lights up the night sky now it is covered in displays of Santas, reindeers and snowflakes.

Their efforts this year for the Christmas Lights Extravaganza are in aid of the hospital's critical-care unit.

Mr Fox said: 'We've covered our home in lights for the last 16 years, and have more recently used it as an opportunity to raise funds for the hospital.

'People always give generously because I think it's a local cause that's close to people's hearts.'

He added: 'And despite the wind and rain on Saturday, families still came out for the first of our Christmas events and to see Father Christmas in his grotto.'

This Saturday, there will be face painting. Children's entertainer Crazy Bananas will be paying a visit on Saturday, December 12.
