Big-hearted Graham Witter is ready to launch another Weston Winter Wonderland in memory of his tragic sister Jessica.

Graham spends weeks preparing the family farm in Weston with thousands of Christmas lights and decorations, before opening to the public.

All proceeds from the Wonderland go to the Donna Louise Hospice, which cared for Jessica in her final weeks before she died a few years ago.

Thousands of people are expected to descend on Carters Green Farm in Weston as they have done over the past five years.

And in that time Graham has helped to raise a staggering £65,550 for the families who rely on The Donna Louise.

Graham said: “I feel proud that our event has helped to support families who are experiencing difficult times in their lives.

“I absolutely love doing this event, especially the preparation in the months before, organising the light display and getting excited when I come up with new, ideas to make it even better and more attractive than the last year.

“I also enjoy working closely with local businesses and building partnerships that will help ensure the continued success of the light display.”

This year the Weston Light Display is bigger, better and more animated than ever before.

There are tens of thousands of bulbs across the display and 1,600 LEDs on the Christmas tree alone.

The event has become hugely popular, with more than 40,000 people visiting the farm over the last five years.

The opening evening for this year’s display is Saturday December 1.

Visitors will be able to have a #sleighselfie with Santa, enjoy festive music, visit Santa’s Grotto and indulge on a #festiveicecream!

Graham added: “The true spirit of Christmas is alive in Weston and we’re proud to bring local families and children together at Christmas, to help make some lovely Christmassy memories for our community!

“The whole event just brings a smile to my face and I absolutely love it.”

Simon Fuller, Chief Executive of The Donna Louise, added: “Graham’s support for The Donna Louise over the last five years has been truly incredible.

“He’s raised a staggering £65,550 which has made a massive difference to the lives of hundreds of families across Staffordshire and Cheshire, supporting them in their home, at the hospice and in hospital.

“I’ll be at the opening evening on December 1 and, after hearing so much about it, I’m really looking forward to seeing the display for myself.

“I hope the local community will support Graham, and The Donna Louise, by visiting his magical Christmas wonderland this year.”

The Weston Light Display will shine bright between December 1 and 28, 6.15pm to 9pm, at Carters Green Farm, Jack Lane, Weston.
