A couple who have been lighting up their house in Stamford for a number of years at Christmas have raised more than £800 this year for a worthy cause.

Mick and Carole Bell from Fife Close in Stamford, decided this Christmas to use their creativity to help raise funds for local charity Anna’s Hope.

Hundreds of people turned out to see the festive display of lights put on show during December. With members of the local community showing their appreciation by donating lots of money to help raise an ‘amazing’ total of £805 for Anna’s Hope.

Anna’s Hope is the leading children’s brain tumour charity in the East of England. The charity is dedicated to giving hope to children and young people diagnosed with a brain tumour.

The charity was set up in October 2006 by Rob and Carole Hughes after their daughter Anna Olivia Hughes tragically died from a brain tumour aged only three years and eight months old.

Mick and Carole met the founder of Anna’s Hope, Carole Hughes, last week to hand over the generous donations. Carole said: “The illuminations were breathtaking and we really appreciate the enormous effort Mick and Carole went to in raising funds for our charity.

“We also thank all those who made the trip to see the display and contributed to the money raised. Every penny will go to helping children in the region with a brain tumour.”
