Eltham family house goes Christmas lights crazy
AN ELTHAM family have gone Christmas light crazy this year, in a bid to raise cash to fight prostate cancer.
Sue Covington has lit up the Westhorne Avenue property, with a lot of help from her children and husband Tony, 53.
The Covingtons have been lighting up the area for three years now, leaving a bucket outside their home to collect for The Prostate Cancer Charity.
And Mrs Covington, 60, says hire firm Travis Perkins agreed to provide scaffolding free of charge - allowing daughters Amanda, 46, and Corinne, 34, to clamber up and hang the lights.
She said: "None of the money goes on the 'leccy. It all goes straight to the prostate cancer charity.
"It's a great way to raise awareness. If a person goes past, looks up and then goes and gets checked out that's a good thing."
