THEY have lit up the faces of youngsters in Mirfield for a decade, raising £20,000 for charity.
Derek Highe’s Christmas lights became an annual tradition, much loved by young and old alike.
Last year when Derek, 54, announced he was giving up decorating his house in Robin Royd Avenue there were glum expressions all round.
But, by popular demand, the lights are back for 2012, albeit slightly scaled down.
For years Derek and two neighbours illuminated their homes bringing hundreds of people into their street.
Families have posted donations through his letterbox with all the money going to charity. Donations this year will again go to Kirkwood Hospice.
Derek said: “I couldn't let people down and so the lights are back with a brand new theme. There is an Arctic scene in the front garden complete with snow, an igloo, penguins and polar bears.
“I hope it puts smiles on people's faces and raises plenty of money for a good cause.”
The lights will be on until January 5.
