The Westfield light show gets bigger and better every year.

St Michael’s Hospice Community Fundraiser Laura Sully said: “This is a fantastic amount to have raised, especially with the challenging weather which organisers faced at the beginning of December. Over the years the Westfield Christmas Lights have raised an astonishing £84,941.70 for the Hospice. We cannot thank the residents and organisers of this event enough.

“It’s not just their dedication and commitment throughout December but all the planning which goes into setting up the lights – it’s just incredible.

“Our thanks also extends to the public who visit and give so generously every year.”
