Molly's House Lights up Bromsgrove

 

Edgbaston’s Maintenance Supervisor Malcolm Molly has just raised more than £3,000 for Birmingham Children's Hospital & the Primrose Hospice after staging a spectacular Christmas lighting display at his house in Bromsgrove.

The fundraising all began several years ago when Molly and his wife Wendy decided to put a small amount of Christmas lights on their house when they originally moved to the Finstall area of Bromsgrove.  

However, after a recommendation from a local passer-by to make it an annual event for charity, Molly and Wendy have now raised more than £35,000 in the last 10 years for the two charities.  

Commenting on the latest fundraising, Molly said: “People in area have certainly become intrigued about what we’re going to do in December as the size of the display has got bigger and we pick a different theme each Christmas. It still amazes us to discover how well know we’ve become for it and how far people travel to see the display.

“Wendy and I would like to thank everybody that has being able to visit the lights, particularly my colleagues at Edgbaston for their support. We’ve been overwhelmed by the generosity shown to raise more than £3,000 in our tenth year of fundraising for these two well deserving charities.

“We look forward to doing it all again next year.”
