Residents of Boxberry Gardens in Walnut Tree, Milton Keynes, are hoping to bring some Christmas cheer with their stunning lights display and raise funds for a deserving charity.

The fundraiser initiative started during Christmas 2020 and was so successful residents are hoping to repeat it this year. Their fantastic efforts raised £6,000 for Milton Keynes Winter Night Shelter which helps support the homeless during the coldest months of the year.

Sheena Roberts said: "In 2020 some of the residents put up Christmas lights to bring a smile to anyone passing by, but before we knew it we were raising funds for the Winter Night Shelter Milton Keynes, and we raised over £6,000.
