There must be more than 4,216 of them lurking in forgotten corners across the South Hams, surely!

If you’re wondering about the odd number, £4,216 is the total to beat this year in Mike Langman of Churchstow’s annual light-up for charity. The big question is, can it be done?

Of course it can! We’re a generous bunch in the South Hams, aren’t we, especially at this time of year, so empty out those pockets and rifle through all those handbags and drawers. Then, head over to Churchstow to admire Mike’s Christmas lights spectacular and pop those coins in the collection box. This year it’s brighter than ever and the kids (not to mention the adults) will love it.

Mike of Glebelands, Churchstow, TQ7 3RD has been rising to this fund-raising challenge every year since the Millennium and, so far, he has raised in excess of £35,000 for the much-loved regional children’s charity, Children’s Hospice South West. Christmas, of course, is a special time for children, which only adds to this amazing display’s huge appeal.

Children’s Hospice South West is a registered charity which provides palliative, respite, end-of-life and bereavement care for life-limited and terminally ill children and their families across the south west of England. Your help this Christmas time could make a real difference to a lot of young lives.

Old pound coins, new pound coins and loose change of any description welcome … and the folding stuff will go down a treat, too! If you’re not on the doorstep, why not make an evening of it and warm your toes in the renowned Church House Inn just round the corner afterwards? Alternatively, you can make a donation on Mike’s Virgin Money Giving page.

You can stop by to admire Mike’s display until January 6th 2018.
