30,000 Pounds Worth Of Christmas Lights On A House

Alex Goodhind has putten a warm glow, and has kept the Christmas magic on for this year too. This is the 14th year in a row, the IT firm manager has decorated his father's residence in Melksham, Wiltshire into a superbly lit Christmas home. 

He paid many workmen to work for him and dug up the road to lay down an industrial power cable, so that the 115,000 fairy lights installed would be lighten up. The lights which are worth more than 30,000 pounds light up the Longford Road everyday from evening till 10 p.m. Last Christmas, the lights billed a total of 700 pound. 

Mr. Goodhind has done this all to raise money for a charity. All money donated by people coming in to view it would lead to a cancer charity. He decided to donate the money as his mother died of cancer a few years ago. In the tough economic conditions being faced all around, Mr. Goodhind said "It would have dampened the mood even more if the lights weren't there". He wanted to keep the christmas spirit running and wanted people to think about something else. Everyone needs to be cheered up, this has been a really disturbing year.
