A St Albans man is hoping to raise over £200 for charity through a Christmas lights display.
This is the third year Frank Clark has put up a display outside his home on Vicarage Close.
Asked why he kept putting up the elaborate display, he said: “It’s the fun of doing it and it gives a lot of people a lot of pleasure.”
After last year’s display, which raised £200, he came back from shopping to find a mysterious parcel outside his house.
Upon opening it, he found it was a decorative reindeer, worth around £180 that someone had donated.

There was a little note with it saying: “Thank you for brightening our Christmas.”
He has also received discounts from retailers on other decorations after saying he was making the effort for charity.
