NEIGHBOURS who turned their street into a spectacular festive lights show for two charities have raised well over £2,000.
Visitors to the lights on Robin Royd Avenue in Mirfield showed their appreciation by giving money.
And the tally reached a grand total of £2,200, which surprised the kind-hearted neighbours behind the project.
The main organiser, Derek Highe, said: "It was overwhelming and we would like to thank everyone who took the time and trouble to come and see the lights and make such generous donations."
The neighbours involved were Bob and Margaret Swailes and David and Tracey Green.
And Derek revealed they are already planning this December's lights, which will be different.
The money will be split between two charities.
One is the Oesophageal Patients' Association, which helped a friend of Derek's who died from cancer.
David Owens, from Dewsbury, played football with Wheelwright Old Boys in Dewsbury. He died from cancer just below the oesophagus, or gullet. The association counselled him during his illness.
The other good cause is a fund for five-year-old Zack Jones, from Lower Hopton, who has leukaemia.
His family aims to take him to Disney World in Florida next year, when he is recovering from his treatment.
Zack, a pupil at Hopton Junior, Infant and Nursery School, has had a tough time since he was diagnosed with leukaemia in January, 2001.
He has had a tube in a main artery in his chest, which doctors use to give him chemotherapy and other medication.
The tube will be removed soon and Zack's family - mum, Fiona, dad Geraint and seven-year-old sister, Jamie, hope to take him to Florida in October.
Fundraising is now well under way.
