A couple in Coventry have covered their house in 30,000 Christmas lights to celebrate the festive season.

Paul Grant and Richard Burbidge spend weeks decorating their home in Barkers Butts Lane in Coundon every year.

They've even extended the display this year to include their neighbour's house (with permission!) and will be running a grotto for visitors.

This year they will be raising money for a hospice for babies in Ash Green, Zoe's Place Baby Hospice.

The hospice will have a 'Light up a Life' tree at the couple's home, where people can switch on a light on the tree to remember a loved one.

“There are lots of things in the pipeline and we hope that one night can act as a night of remembrance." “People can come along and bring a candle and we will turn all the lights off except for the ones on the tree and then light all the candles.” >
