St Ives home lighting up for a good cause

IT’S A WINTER WONDERLAND: June Forway and husband, Dick, officially welcomed in the festive season on Saturday with their spectacular light switch-on in St Ives.

More than 100 people turned up to their home at 80 Hill Rise, which was adorned with hundreds of lights – from sleighs to Santas.

As usual, all proceeds of the annual light display will go to charity, with Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund being this year’s beneficiary.

Saturday night alone raised �365.

“When it gets dark we get parents bringing their children to see the lights and they pop a few pennies in the donation box,” Mrs Forway said. “Every little helps and we hope to raise as much as possible for this great charity.”
