For the eighth year, they have collection buckets for Rosemere Cancer Foundation, Derian House Children’s Hospice, Preston Headway and the Jordan Grant 18 Memorial Fund (CRY - Cardiac Risk in the Young). A total of £700 was raised on the night, with secured buckets out the rest of the month. But this year is specially poignant as the family installed a green heart to celebrate a three-year-old boy, known locally as Jacob and were able to perform a special switch on for him before he died last Monday.
Mark said: “This year, we were approached by a friend who told us about Jacob, so we let him have his own private showing, which he enjoyed. The family wanted to celebrate his life, so we installed a green LED heart in the sky. His parents came to our switch on and thanked us. It was very emotional.
“We had fireworks, which everyone enjoyed, and a countdown before the big switch on.”
