It’s that time of year again when Gamston resident David Carter will be lighting up his home with a fantastic Christmas Display to raise money for charity.
For the past 11 years David has put on a mesmerizing festive Christmas display outside his home to raise money for charity. This will be the 8th year in which he will be raising money for the RSPCA Radcliffe Animal Centre.
Santa Claus will perform the “Grand Switch On” which will take place on Sunday November 26th at 5.00pm. There will be a raffle with excellent prizes and Christmas Music will accompany the display.
David said: “My display will be raising money for the RSPCA Radcliffe Animal Centre to which I am affiliated. All donations go towards helping to care for all the wonderful animals including the running of the centre and they will be very much appreciated.”
“The Centre is funded independently and costs £800K to run annually. It receives no financial aid from the RSPCA National Society. Last year I raised nearly £4,000 and this year I would like to exceed this amount, especially because of the cost of living crisis our costs have skyrocketed.”
In previous years, David has had amazing feedback from visitors. He said: “I get asked constantly are you doing again this year, it is now expected that the display goes ahead and it will be no different this year!
When David was asked why do I do the display, he explained: “I love doing it and get very excited to see the children’s faces light up and especially when they point at the different lights and effects.
“It also amazing how the donations come in, some nights you hardly see anyone and the amounts given really surprises you.”
Donations can be made by popping money into the red collection box outside the house or you can simply text to ‘RSPCALIGHTS5’ to 70085 to donate £5, or text
‘RSPCA LIGHTS10’ to 70085 to donate £10.
Alternatively one can use the QR code on the notice board, this uses JustGiving and utilises the gift aid system.
If you cannot make the November 26th Grand Switch On, don’t worry! David’s Christmas Display will be on daily from 4pm – 9pm until December 31st.
David’s lights will be at his home at 4 Sandale Close, Gamston, Nottingham, NG2 6QG and every child attending receives a free lollipop!
