Last few days to see the beautiful Christmas Lights of Beechwood as they come to an end this Saturda


James Comish has the most beautiful lights on his house in Formby and all in aid of a good cause. He is trying to raise money with his amazing Christmas lights over the festive season, for Formby youngster Dan who suffers from Cerebral Palsy.


The lights are only on until this SATURDAY 5TH JANUARY, so if you haven't yet been to see them, there is still some time left.


James has decorated his home on Beechwood Drive, Formby with fairy lights and Christmas decorations for the local community to enjoy, as well as helping raise money for a local charity. If you go down to Beechwood Drive in Formby to see the fantastic lights, please put some money in the tin for Dan.

For the fourth year running James is hoping to raise funds for Formby youngster Daniel Van Der Velden who suffers from cerebral palsy.

Daniel has dystonic quadriplegic cerebral palsy, a devastating condition which leaves sufferers unable to talk or sit up and with hardly any movement in their arms and legs.


His parents Julie Kirby and Irwin Van Der Velden, of Formby, have found a new form of massage-based therapy called ABR which they believe will help the twelve-year-old maintain at least some control over his own movement as he grows up.


The treatment is only available in Belgium and therefore is not funded by the NHS.

It means the family face trips every three months across the Channel for Daniel’s therapy, at a cost of about £1,500 per visit.

Daniel travels to Belgium four times a year to receive the specialist treatment for his condition and any funds raised from the Christmas lights will be donated to Daniel's Therapy Fund. Julie Kirby, Daniel's mum said: “When James told me that they have decided to donate any funds raised from the Christmas Lights to Daniel's Therapy Fund for the third year, I was overwhelmed." ”The lights have always been designed to support various local charities, so for the family to decide to donate the money to Daniel for a third year is amazing. I can't thank James enough for all his generosity.“ Daniel was born with Dystonic Quadriplegic cerebral palsy which means he can't talk, sit up or use his arms and legs independently, but with a little help from his Therapy Fund, he can receive specialist treatment from the Belgium Advanced Bio-Mechanical Rehabilitation (ABR) centre. Money raised from Jame's Christmas lights will go towards Dan’s Therapy Fund, which will help fund trips, therapy equipment and research.
