A WORKINGTON family have created a Christmas light display using around 7,000 lights to raise funds for a much-loved charity and put a smile on people’s faces this festive season.

Jono Trevor and his family, who live in Westfield, Workington, have created the Christmas lights display which now in its third year, to raise funds for men’s mental health charity Andy’s Man Club.

The light display will be on most nights from 5pm until 8pm for people to come and enjoy, with donations being accepted online for the vital charity.

Jono said: “We have been doing this for the past three years. It’s the joy it puts on people's faces that makes it worth doing. My kids love Christmas lights and helping put them up."

The family have chosen to raise funds for Andy’s Man Club because they believe it is an important support system for people in the area who are experiencing issues with their mental health.

“We have done it differently this year. We have now an inflatable arch with the Andy's Man Club sign on the fence in front, so people passing by can take a photo or selfie with a nice background.

“The Andy's Man Club is important in local areas like Workington because there isn't any support for men without it.

"I've never been myself but heard a lot of good things about the meetings."

The family have estimated the number of lights used in the display is in the region of 7,000, with the display also featuring five inflatable items and around 30 decorations in total.

“We would have had a lot more, but a few broke with been damaged in storage”, said Jono.

Visitors to the display can either donate in person or via a fundraising page, with all donations going towards the charity.

Jono said: “We have a donation box on the step so you can put your loose change in, or you can find the link on GoFundMe.”

Last year the family used their display to raise vital funds for charity The Great North Air Ambulance.
