A Nethercourt family who put on a Christmas light display for charity have raised £1,045.79 for St John Ambulance in Ramsgate.

Tyrone Lewis and Katie Keen, along with 11-year-old Bethany, spent three weeks setting up their masterpiece at their Nethercourt Farm Road home and used an astonishing 22,093 LED bulbs.

Donations and a raffle with prizes given by local businesses raised the funds. The family were helped by Katie’s parents, Dawn and Martin Horton, who stood outside the display every night taking donations and selling raffle tickets.

Tyrone said: “The donations are being used in our local St John ambulance unit in Sussex Street, Ramsgate, and run by Saphinna Philpott, to purchase equipment for our cadets to learn lifesaving skills.

“We are so thankful to absolutely everyone who has participated with buying raffle tickets and donations. Also a massive thank you for all the local businesses for donating prizes, we couldn’t achieve this without everyone’s support.

“We will be purchasing the equipment early 2024 we will have photos of the cadets receiving and using this important equipment.”
