ALMOST £300 has been raised for charity thanks to a festive lights display in Redditch.

The Mernagh family decorated the front of their house and have been raising money for Redditch Nightstop, a unique service trying to reduce the number of young people at risk of experiencing homelessness in the Redditch area.

It does this by the provision of short term, emergency accommodation and longer term supported lodgings in the homes of trained volunteer hosts.

The money raised will go toward helping offer practical, emotional and social help through advice, guidance and support on a wide range of life and independent living skills.

Dawn Mernagh thanked everyone who has been to see the lights in Rush Lane.
