A Chesterfield couple have transformed their house and garden into a winter wonderland with a massive display of Christmas lights, all in aid of charity. For the past eight years, Malcolm and Lesley Muldoon, from Ankerbold Road, Tupton, have put on the show in return for a donation.
More than 30,000 bulbs light up the property, and the garden is home to a collection of Santas, a herd of 4ft reindeer, an 8ft high snowman, seals, bears and giraffes. Since 2004, the couple have raised around £15,000 which has been given out to local charities.
The Muldoons are switching the lights on for the first time this season at 5pm tonight. One of the charities to benefit again this year is Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity - which is aiming to raise £1.3 million for a new Cancer Treatment and Research Suite at Weston Park Hospital.
Charities in Yorkshire and the Humber have reported an increase in demand for their help over the last three years. A report by Involve Yorkshire and Humber has found that nearly half of charities are also expecting their financial situation to deteriorate over the next year.
The report found that just as demand for help has gone up during the recession, many charities have seen funding go down due to reductions in public donations, grants and contracts from the government.
– Judy Robinson, Chief Executive of Involve
"Voluntary and community groups are passionate about the support they give to the neediest in our communities and that's more important than ever. But charities in Yorkshire and Humber cannot forever go on doing more and more for less and less. They want government to listen and support more."
