The Chilvers covered their home in Edmonton Road, Kesgrave in glistening fairy lights again this year, keeping up a 12-year tradition.

Donations were this year collected for Mason’s Magic, a fund set up by the family of Mason Fountain to help children with brain tumours.

Di Chilver said: “Decorating starts at the beginning of November to allow for inclement weather conditions and we have a grand switch on in December with a countdown, inviting friends and family to join us for a Christmas barbecue.”

This year the Chilvers and their friends also took a dip in the North Sea at Felixstowe on Boxing Day in aid of Mason’s Magic.

In total, they raised £914 for the cause.
