A MUM-of-eight has festooned her Dalton home in thousands of Christmas lights to raise money for a local charity.
Zoey Ford, 31, of Harpe Inge, has lit up her home for the last nine years.
But this year she has created her biggest display so far and has decided to raise cash for the Huddersfield-based One Good Turn charity.
One Good Turn, set up by Sophia Crawshaw, from Marsh, helps needy families by passing on unwanted household items and clothing.
Zoey spent three days decorating her home and front garden with a little help from children Amy, 16, Arran, 14, Nathan, 13, Callum, 12, Kile 11, Chloe, nine, Tia, eight, and Jacob, two.
Nathan is helper-in-chief and can often be found out front dressed as Santa Claus.
Zoey said: “When we first started doing this we only had three Christmas decorations but we have added to it every year and now it’s the biggest we’ve ever had. The kids just love it.
“We get loads of people coming down to have a look so we decided to raise money for charity. It’s a brilliant cause and I want to raise as much as possible.”
Christmas is a busy time for One Good Turn and a Christmas party is planned for the children on December 16.
The charity has a regular coffee morning every Wednesday at the Head of Steam pub at Huddersfield Railway Station.
