Lights for Luke: dad ‘il­lu­mi­nates’ house!

Leek Post & Times - - NEWS - By Les Jack­son leslie.jack­[email protected]­plc.com

A FAM­ILY has il­lu­mi­nated their Leek home for Christ­mas es­pe­cially for their teenage son.

Wayne Hes­keth has spent hours do­ing the work on the fam­ily home at The Doves, which is lo­cated near to Chur­net View Mid­dle School.

Wayne’s wife, Tracey, said: “Our son Luke, who is 13 years old, suf­fer­ers from Duchenne Mus­cu­lar Dys­tro­phy. He at­tends The Mead­ows School in Leek.

“Wayne has spent hours do­ing the work for Luke, who thinks that the house lights are bril­liant.

“We have had many peo­ple look­ing at them, while oth­ers have been pulling up in cars.

“Peo­ple have knocked on the door to say that they are bril­liant. We have also had peo­ple ask­ing when we are switch­ing them on at night, so I have now got a timer so they au­to­mat­i­cally come on when it’s dark.

“They are all LED bulbs and the cost is min­i­mal as I can see on my Smart me­ter that just boil­ing a ket­tle costs a lot more than run­ning the lights all night.”
