A couple who decorated their home at Christmas have presented £375 to a hospital’s children’s ward.
Each year Tony and Rosemary Fox, of Clenchwarton, transform their Linford Estate home into a winter wonderland.
They have been doing this for the past 12 years and last year was the first time they decided to accept donations for charity.
As a result, they were able to present a cheque to Rudham Ward at King’s Lynn’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
Mrs Fox explained the front garden and house were decorated each year as a nativity, snow village and a grotto.
But for Christmas 2014, they plan to expand their decorations to include the back garden and garage.
They will also be including a wish tree where children can place their Christmas present requests and their chosen charity will be the hospital’s Roxburgh children’s centre.
Said Mrs Fox: “We are off the beaten track in Clenchwarton. We put signs up through the village. We just love doing it. We plan it all year and it takes a full working week to do the decorations and a couple of days afterwards to take them down.”
Visitors enjoyed refreshments and a gift for each child.
Mrs Fox is the ward clerk at Gayton Ward and Mr Fox is a triage practitioner nurse at Gayton Road Medical Centre.
The couple hopes to get a celebrity to perform the switch-on later this year.
