GRANDMA Beatrice Clough is lighting up Easington Lane with her eye-catching decorations.

Her house in Thames Street has been festooned with everything from snowflakes on the windows to reindeer on the roof.

The 58-year-old gran of 13 and great-gran of one is asking passers-by who enjoy the lights to donate money in a collection bucket for Help for Heroes.

Beatrice spent two days decorating the house with family friend Amy Hodge and her daughter Ava-May Hodge. “I decorate the house like this every year but I’ve never done it for charity before,” said Beatrice, who lives at the house with son Peter Moutter, 33, grandson Karl Murray, 18, grand-daughter Chloe, 15, and grandson Leon, four months.

She added: “The kids round here love the house, they’ve been asking for ages when I was going to turn the lights on this year. A few of my friends have lost someone in the military so I thought this would be a good way of raising money. Christmas is a big deal for us. Even my dogs – Whisky, Mitzy and Poppy – get dressed up.”
