Weston christmas lights - Graham Witter

Charity champion Graham Witter is calling on South Cheshire businesses to support his annual festive fundraiser in Weston.

With only four months until his big “switch on”, Graham has already started to plan this year’s Weston Christmas Light Display.

For the seventh year, Graham plans to transform his family home and garden into a Winter Wonderland to raise vital funds for The Donna Louise Hospice.

The hospice provided respite care to his late sister, Jessica, and gave many hours of family support to Graham and his parents.

Over the last six years, Graham has raised £92,310 for The Donna Louise, and this year he hopes to top the £100,000 fundraising mark.

Now Graham is calling on local businesses to help him reach this milestone.

He said: “Each year the Light Display costs thousands of pounds to organise and without the support of the local businesses who sponsor the event, it simply wouldn’t be possible.

“By sponsoring the Weston Christmas Light Display local businesses will not only be creating a magical event for our local community, they’ll be continuing my sister’s legacy and helping me raise much needed funds for The Donna Louise which supports many local families like mine across Staffordshire and Cheshire.”

Last year, more than 15,000 people visited the Weston Christmas Light Display throughout December.

They helped raise £26,760 which helped fund a learning disability nurse for 12 months and provided two sign and symbol communication workshops for hospice staff.

This year, Graham is hoping the local community will come together again and help him beat the total raised in 2018.

He added: “There is a variety of exciting sponsorship opportunities available.

“And with so many people visiting the display throughout December, as well as following us on social media, it’s a chance to grab some excellent brand exposure at a much-loved and liked, community event.

“I’d love to hear from any businesses who would like to get involved to help make this year’s Weston Christmas Light Display bigger and brighter than ever before.”
