THE brightly-lit "Christmas House" which has become an annual feature in Beech Road, St Albans, in recent years and which attracts sightseers from around the district, raised £2,000 for charity this year.

This year the money is being spent on items for the St Albans Jubilee Centre for the elderly and Heathlands School for the deaf.
