Swansway is supporting Graham Witter, 23, in his fund-raising for the Donna Louise Children’s Hospice and you can help us!

Children are invited to design decals for one of our cars, which will be used to promote the Weston Christmas Light Display. Not only will the winning design be used on the car, but the winner, and their family, will also win a VIP trip to Crewe Lyceum to watch Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, on the front row and a trip to the Weston Christmas Lights switch on!

The organiser of the event, Graham Witter, 23, was honoured in last year’s Pride of Crewe Awards, winning the Community Individual award for his fund-raising on behalf of the Donna Louise Children’s Hospice. This year he’s hoping to beat last year’s total of £22,680 and is determined to raise over £30,000, with our help.

Graham began his fund-raising in 2013; as he explains,

It all started when I began decorating the family home for my late sister, Jessica, who had cardio-facio cutaneous syndrome and severe epilepsy. Despite her many health problems, she had a truly magical fascination for colour, light and sound.

Each year we’d put up more and more lights until in 2013 a friend suggested we open the display to the public.

The first year we raised £1,000, in 2014 it was £5,720 and by 2015 it was over £10,000; very sadly, after a difficult illness in December 2015 Jessica passed away that New Year’s Eve.

This prompted Graham to dedicate this festive event to her memory, so in 2016 he put Jessica’s name up in lights, knowing this was something she would really have loved and resulted in the light display raising £22,680 for the Donna Louise hospice.

Determined to raise even more for this wonderful cause, Swansway has assisted Graham in designing a competition to raise awareness of his Christmas fundraiser.
