Fes­tive dis­play lights the way

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

A CHAL­LOCK man lit up his home for char­ity, gen­er­at­ing £1,700 for the Ash­ford Pil­grims Hospice. Alan Chap­man, of Chat­mans Close, dec­o­rated his house in Christ­mas lights and asked passers-by for do­na­tions, col­lect­ing £855 which was then match-funded by his em­ploy­ers. It was the third year run­ning Alan and his wife Va­lerie have raised money for the hospice and the first time Bibby Line Dis­tri­bu­tion has sup­ported their ef­forts. “It’s their 100th an­niver­sary this year and they are hop­ing to do more for the hospice and other char­i­ties through­out the year,” said Alan.
