THIS family from Malvern goes to great lengths each year to make Christmas special with its festive displays.

Brothers Tom and Tim Leaman will usually spend days setting up their Christmas displays on Beauchamp Road in Malvern each year to raise money for charity. 

This year, the pair spent four days decorating their house and, along with the light display, bought gifts and sweets for the children who arrive outside their home to marvel at the creation.

In previous years, the pair had also set up a Santa's Grotto so children could meet, greet and tell Father Christmas what they would like in their stocking.

The popular display was cancelled last year due to a death in the family but this year the two have bounced back by hosting a bigger and better display than in previous years. 

Tom Leaman said there have been new additions to the displays this year.

"We buy new lights yearly to make the display even better," he said.

"It takes four days to put up and we buy gifts for kids to have, which comes out of our pocket as all donations go straight to the charity.

This year they will raise funds for Midland Air Ambulance.

Mr Leaman added: "We have really good feedback from the public.

"Loads have said they missed it last year and are glad to see it back this year.

"They say they really enjoy the display, even the singing Santas and some have said it makes their Christmas. 

"It makes us feel delighted how people enjoy the lights and the children enjoying the display and raising funds for charity."

In previous years, the two have raised over £5,000 to be split between each charity.
