CLARKSON resident Tracey Taylor has listed her display of Christmas lights on the Christmas Lights Finder website to help sick children.

“We started the lights about five years ago for our grandsons to enjoy,” she said.

“We now have four grandsons but the lights are enjoyed by many local children.

“We have raised money in the past for the children’s hospital but this year we are proud to be fundraising for the Make-A-Wish Foundation with Origin.

“The lights turn on at 7.30pm and play to music every half hour with the last music or show at 9pm. We turn the lights off at 10pm.

“The children are free to sit in the life size sleigh, enjoy a candy cane and go up to the window to see Santa.”

Origin and Make-A-Wish Australia joined forces to help families locate and share the joy of their local Christmas lights displays while supporting children and teenagers battling life-threatening illnesses.
