Harold Hill family raises money for charity through festive decorations

A Harold Hill family are raising money for charity by decorating their home with festive decorations.

The French family, of Wednesbury Road, have included a train track and a waving Father Christmas among other things, to help fundraise for King George and Queen’s Hospitals Charity.

Samantha French, 42, has helped her husband Colin, 41, with the lights for the last five years, and said: “We’ve always done this since the children were young.

“Seeing the smiles on everyone’s faces as they walked by made us do more,” she added.

The family hope to raise about �500 for the Children’s Ward and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Queen’s Hospital, Romford, after their grand-daughter, Tallulah Green, was cared for there.
