Residents in Worthing speak of a Christmas lights reception

Neighbors who put up a Christmas display for charity said the response was “absolutely phenomenal”.

They also thanked companies in the area for covering their energy bills.

Residents of Saxifrage Way, Worthing have been putting up Christmas lights since 2020 to raise money for Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance.

Liam, one of the residents, said the service is one “we cannot afford to lose”.

Regarding the support received, Liam said: “The response to the return of the display this year has been absolutely phenomenal.

“A lot of people didn’t know if we were coming back this year due to the huge increase in electricity prices, we didn’t think we would go ahead but we were very fortunate to have been sponsored by some amazing companies within Worthing.”

The companies that have sponsored the exhibition are Jim Jam’s Bakes and Barista, The Foxx Inn Patching, DM Electrical Services, Worthing Lions, Zeera Worthing and A Star Waste Management.

Liam added: “The event simply wouldn’t be possible without these companies supporting and sponsoring our show, so we have them to thank for that.

“The community from far and wide came to support the exhibition and the Air Ambulance KSS with big smiles and joy. For many people, seeing the exhibition as a family and taking photos to create those lifelong Christmas memories has become an annual journey.

“In just five days we have raised just over £400 thanks to the generosity of those who have already visited which is so incredible considering money is extremely tight for so many so we really can help people cannot thank you enough for the support.”

In the last two years, the neighbors have raised more than £10,000.

This year the exhibition will take place daily until January 1st from 4:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

This year they understand that money is “extremely tight” for people but have set a target of £1,000.
