Christmas lights shine bright for Weston Hospice

A family in Bournville have set up an awe-inspiring light display to help bring Christmas cheer whilst raising donations for Weston Hospice.

Mark Antonio first set up the light display 5 yrs ago at his home in Axe Close and started setting up the display this year on the 14th November, after taking several days to put up the display and with more still to come, the lights were switched on the 21st November.


Mark said "We had a constant flow of visitors to see the display and make donations through the Weston Hospice charity buckets outside they can also make online donations via our Facebook page"


When asked why they choose to support the hospice Mark said "We have chosen Weston Hospice because it is close to our hearts after a family friend, Elizabeth Barton, received such amazing care in the hospice before she passed in 2010. After she passed away her husband Malcolm became a volunteer for 5 years at the Hospice but sadly passed away last year, which heightened our support for the work they do"


Mark Flower from Weston Hospice said "The hospice has taken a financial hit with many fundraising events being cancelled alongside the shop closures .It means that the community fundraising is even more important than our usual need. We are incredibly grateful to our supporters for everything they do for the hospice. Mark’s Christmas light show is a brilliant example of the creativity and care of our supporters.”


The lights are turned on from 4.30pm to 9.00pm every evening on Axe Close, Bournville.
