THIS STUNNING seasonal shot shows the Christmas lights in Grafton Crescent in Charford, which is helping to raise funds for the Hope For Georgia campaign.

Bridget Kings, who lives there, has built up the display over more than 15 years and puts on a show every year for charity.

Last year was going to be the last one, but she has changed her mind to help local resident Georgia after hearing about the campaign.

As well as the lights, there is a box outside where people can donate to Hope For Georgia and there is a post-box where youngsters can send their letters to Santa.

Youngsters can also, for a donation, book an appointment to visit Father Christmas and receive a gift.

In the last three days alone, 30 youngsters have been booked in to see the man in the big red suit.

"We need to dig deep for Georgia in the last few days," said Bridget.

Anyone wanting to see Santa in the last week before Christmas can phone Bridget on 01527 831260.
