A dad and his neighbours have vowed to make their street the most Christmassy in Hyndburn to raise funds for a cancer charity.
Tony Jenkinson, from Aspen Fold in Oswaldtwistle, has been decorating his home with hundreds of fairy lights for the last twelve years to raise cash for the Marie Curie nurses.
Now neighbours volunteered to join in to turn their street into a Winter Wonderland.
Tony’s son Lee said they started decorating their home in memory of his grandfather, Arthur.
He said: “My dad has been decorating his house every year since 2002.
“My grandfather was diagnosed with bowel cancer and we lost him.
“My dad wanted to raise money for the Marie Curie nurses because they helped us out so much.
“My dad has raised thousands for them over the years that he’s been doing this.”
But this year Tony and his neighbours are taking it one step further and transforming their street.
Lee said: “Some of the neighbours decided that they wanted to join in and take part this year and came up with the idea of getting the nine houses to take part and they decided to go for it.
“We are having a big switch on event and we will be having a bit of a street party to mark it, I’ve missed the lights for the last eight years because I’ve been in Wales but I will definitely be there this year. People have been very generous, we’ve had light donated from MK Luminations in Darwen and festivelights.com in Wigan.
“Santa will be there with his sleigh and there will be food and drink on offer as well. “
The big switch on of the Aspen Fold Christmas lights will be held on Sunday, November 30.
Lee said: “I think the plan is to have a collection box outside the houses that are taking part.”
