Patricia Allen, of Elm Close, Huntingdon, is supporting the emergency medical charity with her Christmas lights, which Josh Brown turned on at a ceremony outside her home on Saturday night.

The Burkes made it two homes supporting Magpas when Veronica Burke’s house in High Leys, St Ives, was illuminated in front of her family on Monday.

Ms Burke said: “We’ve been doing it quite a few years.

“Last year, we raised money for Multiple Sclerosis and the year before the kidney dialysis unit at Addenbrooke’s Hospital.

“We changed it this year to get a few more people to support.

“This year there are two additions, an inflatable train and snow globes.”

INFORMATION: To support the lights, there are collection boxes at the two homes.
