Framlingham, near Ipswich, sees advent window displays on Double Street attract the crowds and raise almost £1,500

A charity advent display featuring windows in Double Street, Framlingham, has raised £1,450 for charity.

The display, which was made up of Christmas-themed windows created by residents who live in the road, was visited by dozens of families through December, with its collection buckets gathering the impressive sum in aid of Salvation Army Food Bank and the Disasters Emergency Committee.

The fundraiser is organised by resident Gill Knight each year, with an increasing number of Double Street residents hoping to be involved each year.

The window displays raised almost £1,500 for charity.

“The event is always free, but we welcome donations and every penny that we have raised goes to charity,” said Mrs Knight

“It brings children and families out, especially towards the end of the month, when they are all on show.

“Many hours of effort goes in to a lot of the windows, and we even had one lady who is 88 and has arthritis, who has put together a great display as she really wanted to be involved.”

The creations, which were revealed one day in the days leading up to Christmas, remained in place for viewing until Tuesday.
