A DUNCRAIG street is lighting up the lives of many kids in need this Christmas.
Danny Brady of Samson Court said he and his neighbours had been creating Christmas lights displays for five years, raising money for Wheelchairs for Kids.
Last year they raised $17,000 for the cause that provides wheelchairs to children in developing countries around the world.
“It is a really good feeling to be able to make a difference and it creates a great atmosphere in the street, which is what Christmas is all about – coming together to do something meaningful for others,” Mr Brady said.
“It all started a few years back with the suggestion coming from one of the young lads up the road who was only nine – he left a note in everyone’s letterbox and since then it has only become bigger and better from there.”
He said the neighbours took turns collecting the conations.
“Wheelchairs for Kids is a group of retirees who make and distribute more than 300 wheelchairs a month for needy children around the world so we are all proud to support their efforts,” he said.
This year Mr Brady has joined the Synergy Christmas Lights Trail and encourages others to join and nominate a cause to help drive more visitors and boost fundraising efforts.
