Extravagant Christmas lights raise incredible £1,000 for Chairman's Appeal for Ashgate Hospice.

Steve and Janet Pollard have decorated their home with Christmas lights to raise funds for Ashgate Hospice this year.

In conjunction with Bridge Inn Blues (supporters of Chesterfield Football Club) an amount of £1,000 was presented to the Chairman of North East Derbyshire District Council, Councillor Martin Thacker whose chosen charity is the Hospice.

The Club’s mascot, Chester was on hand to demonstrate appreciation for all Bridge Inn Blues do in the community.

Councillor Thacker said, “The festive spirit has been generated by the Pollards and Bridge Inn Blues to ensure a very generous donation for a worthy cause. The Christmas decorations at St. Lawrence Avenue have created a ‘feel good factor’. I am aware of the hard work and dedication invested by Steve and Janet to bring seasonal joy to others. I am grateful to them, Kimberley Pollard, Paul Goodwin and everyone at the Bridge Inn for their kindness and helping to raise funds for my Charity Appeal.”
