Residents on Fenay Bridge Park lit up Christmas with their festive displays – but Julie Ingamells cooked up a storm selling biscuits and cupcakes for charity.
Virtually the whole estate light up their homes for Christmas and once again this year they raised money for The Kirkwood as part of the Fenay Bridge & Lepton Kirkwood Festive Light Trail.
Julie and husband Tony’s home is renowned as one of the best decorated on the estate and is known by neighbours as the “Aldi Carrot House” because of the Aldi carrot characters hitching a ride on Santa’s sleigh in the front garden.
There was also a postbox especially for letters to Santa.
Julie baked cupcakes and Christmas biscuits and sold them to friends and neighbours, raising £261.30 for The Kirkwood.
Julie said: “I was so thrilled to take part and raise some money for such a good cause. The kiddies loved the lights which my husband Tony puts up every year and a lot commented about Katy and Kevin Carrot in their sleigh.
“I love Christmas and I love to see the children with their smiling faces. It gives me so much joy with the money we raised going to such a wonderful place. The Kirkwood is so local to us and they do such an amazing job.”
