Hospice fund-raiser dies just a week after spectacular house display is switched on
A DEDICATED fundraiser who covered his home in Christmas lights to raise cash for charity has died – just a week after this year’s switch-on. Brian Gilbert, 70, who annually illuminated his house and garden for Ashford Pilgrims Hospice, died suddenly on Sunday. Now his widow Ann says the lights at their Kingsnorth home will stay on until New Year’s Day as a tribute to her husband and to raise as much cash for the hospice as possible.
