A family in Harold Wood hopes their special Christmas lights display will help raise money for a charity that supports homeless people.
Colin and Sam French put on a special Christmas lights display outside their home in Wednesbury Road every year to raise money for a charity.
This year they are supporting the Crisis at Christmas campaign.
Sam told the Recorder: “My husband is the real artist when it comes to putting it all together.
“We don’t advertise the charity too largely as we don’t want people to feel pressured to donate. It’s just nice for people to come and see the lights and feel festive.
“If we can help just one person out of the cold at Christmas, that would be great.”
For every £28.18 of donations the Crisis charity receives, the volunteers will be able to help someone take their first steps out of homelessness by providing them warm meals, a health check and year-round training education and support.
