Taking place at Grasby Cresent, Grimsby on Saturday, 1 December 2018
The Spectacular Christmas Lights Display is back for another year in Grasby Cresent, Grimsby. Once again, the Connolly’s have decorated their home with thousands of dazzling Christmas lights to raise funds for St Andrew’s Hospice.
The family do this to raise money for the hospice in memory of their beloved friend, Dave Moreman, who passed away in 2015. This year would have been Dave’s 40th birthday and the Connolly’s are hoping to mark this event with the biggest and best display yet.
They have been turning their house into a Christmas Light Extravaganza in aid of the hospice after Dave was cared for during the later stages of his five-year battle with a rare form of bone cancer called osteosarcoma.
He sadly passed away in January 2015, leaving his wife, Holly and three children, Reece, Gracie and Max as well as many, many friend who all miss him dearly. St Andrew’s is one of a handful of hospices who run both adult and children’s services on the same site providing free care for anyone with a wide range of progressive life-limiting conditions. It costs £5.5-million a year to run, and only a small percentage of that is granted by statutory bodies.
Each year, the hospice provides care and support for hundreds of patients, both adults and children, their families, friends and hundreds of carers. We have twelve en-suite adult rooms and four rooms for children for overnight stays, and there is accommodation available for families to stay in too.
Tracey and Martin Connolly are hoping to make this their best year yet, raising money in memory of Dave on his 40th birthday. The lights will be switched on at 5pm on Saturday 1st December 2018, which would have been Dave’s birthday. They welcome as many people as possible to visit their fantastic display of Christmas Lights and hope that it will spread Christmas spirit and cheer throughout the holidays to anyone who sees their spectacularly decorated home.
The Connolly's have already started putting up the Christmas Lights on 24th October, that's just an indication of how many lights there will be this year. This particular display piece is brand new to the spectacular array this year.
