9:00am Thursday 31st October 2013 in News
A fundraising dynamo is aiming to light up Otley for charity this winter.
Mel Metcalfe and her family will have their house and garden on Newall Carr Road shining with Christmas lights and decorations from Sunday, December 1.
A countdown to the switch-on will be held at Newall Church Hall, where mince pies and mulled wine will be served and cakes, toys, crafts and other gifts will be on sale.
Running from 5.30pm to 8.30pm, the launch party will also see a tombola and raffle held in the hall and small children’s gifts presented in return for donations to the collection pot.
All of the proceeds will go to the Leeds branch of premature and ill baby charity Bliss.
