Giant Santa lights up Latchford street to raise funds for Sled Dog Rescue charity


VIDEO: A giant Santa has again lit up a Latchford Street, helping raise funds for a Sled Dogs rescue charity.

The Christmas lights display, featuring a 35ft Santa, has been created by local couple Roxy Eaves and Rob Jones on Broadbent Avenue, Latchford, and opened for the first time, last night, Friday.

While the light display will be on every night the Giant Santa and charity collections will open once a week, on a Thursday at 5:30pm, until the last week before Christmas when it will open in the build-up to the big day.
