Neighbours in Downham Market have raised more than £1,000 for charity – thanks to their spectacular Christmas lights.

Justin Lewis and wife Susan have been teaming up with next door neighbours Brian and Margaret Diggle for the last four years, putting on an incredible festive display outside their homes in Park Lane.

The impressive lights, which transform both bungalows into one big light show, have become a popular yuletide attraction in the town.

And this year saw a record amount raised for the East Anglian Air Ambulance.

“It’s for a good cause and we get great support from the public,” said Susan Gooding-Lewis.

“You see the air ambulances about Downham and the villages so much now and it’s a fantastic job they do saving people’s lives.”

Mrs Gooding-Lewis owns the town’s Knicat bakery and a collection of donations from her customers also contributed to the final total.

“We’re quite proud but if it wasn’t for the public and their kind donations we couldn’t do it. We put the work in with the lights but the donations make all the difference. It’s nice and people are so friendly and generous,” she said.

This year the neighbours even had a snow machine, creating fake snow for children to enjoy.
