Matt Smith’s Christmas lights have already raised £1,250 for the East Anglian Air Ambulance, and there will be more to come.

The display at his home in Glenburn Avenue was officially turned on at a special event last month and the cash was raised from donations on the night.

A well as a visit from Father Christmas, representatives from the air ambulance and festive stalls, there was live music from Bill Downs and Terry Adams which made for a great evening.

The lights are on every day from 4pm until 9pm. This year there is a light tunnel with a spot at the end for seasonal selfies and a donation box.

Matt said: “Thank you to everyone who came and supported the event raising money for such a wonderful charity.

“This couldn’t have happened without you.”

Visit to donate.

There are also beautiful displays in Linton Crescent, where Jeanette Fairweather is raising money for SEN Network, and in Sparhawk Avenue, where Susan Streeter has lit up her home in aid of the Royal British Legion.
