Displays of Christmas lights in a Sutton street raised £750 to be split between three charities.

All the residents of Rowan Garth created festive displays for the popular annual attraction.

Around 100 people braved wind and rain to see the switch-on in early December while Silsden Town Band played carols and festive music, and dozens more went along over the next few weeks.

Phil Corp said he and fellow residents wanted to thank all those who made donations after seeing the lights (pictured).

He said: “Despite the poor weather there was a steady stream of visitors every night and the final total was a magnificent £750. This will be divided between the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, Yorkshire Cancer Research and the British Heart Foundation.”
