Holden family switch on lights for Hospice

16 November 2015

A Christmas-crazy family from Abram will host a special light switch-on event on Sunday 29th November to raise money for Wigan and Leigh Hospice.

The Holden family, who live on Davy Road in Abram, started their Christmas light spectacle ten years ago when their first child was born and continued the show when they moved to their current house five years ago.

The festive light switch-on will take place at 5pm on 29th November when the family will offer some limited food to visitors in aid of the Hospice. Collection buckets for the Hospice will also be available outside the house in the run up to Christmas for anyone coming to see the lights.

Sarah Holden said: "We are mad about Christmas and when we started a family we really wanted to do something a bit special to celebrate the festive season and make Christmases magical for our children.

"This year, we would really like to raise some money from our light show to help spread good cheer across the borough. We chose the Hospice as it is such a fantastic charity that will be caring and supporting families across Wigan and Leigh over this festive period."

Christine Edwardson, Hospice Community Fundraiser, said: "We are delighted that the Holden family has chosen to raise money for the Hospice by organising a Christmas light switch-on.

"When people across the borough organise events, such as this, it makes a big difference to so many lives. I hope lots of people from the local area will go along on 29th November to show their support and help them to raise as much money as possible."
