A YULETIDE fan is continuing his Christmas charity tradition after his son underwent a major operation.

Steve Sudbury has been putting up the incredible festive lights outside his Gosfield home for more than a decade.

Speaking to the Gazette previously, he said the lights have bene getting “bigger and better each year”.

The self-employed gardener combines the tradition with raising money for the Children With Cancer charity.

The charity works to improve survival rates across all types of childhood cancer, as well as supporting sufferers and their families.

Steve chose the charity because of his previous battle with cancer and his work with the Scouts.

However, after his son suffered heart problems and had to undergo a double heart bypass operation a few months ago, he is now also collecting for the British Heart Foundation.

The British Heart Foundation funds medical research related to heart and circulatory diseases and their risk factors, and campaigns to shape public policy and raise awareness.

The charity funds about £100million of research each year into all heart and circulatory diseases and the factors that cause them.

Steve is encouraging anyone who would like to see all the Christmas lights to visit his house on the Greenfields estate in Gosfield.

Those wanting to donate to either charity can do so online or by posting a donation through the letter box.
