One Great Yarmouth home has fully embraced the Christmas spirit this year, all in the name of a good cause.

Chris Reeves has transformed his Admirality Road home with hundreds of lights and decorations as he attempts to raise awareness and money for Prostate Cancer UK.

He said: “The reason why I chose prostate cancer is because in September I lost my grandfather. He was fighting it for five years and he had a number of strokes in that time too and was left bedbound.

“He was a real fighter.

“I recently moved from a bungalow to a house and when he passed away I thought it would be a good opportunity to do something to raise awareness of the cancer.

“Not a lot of people are aware of it and what it involves, but I think people are starting to understand how it affects people.”

Mr Reeves has been backed in his mission by his housemates.

He said: “I live with some of my friends and they have been great about it.

“They are really impressed with how it looks and the work that went into it.

“They let me get on with it because they know I love Christmas that much.

“One of their former bosses has prostate cancer too so we both thought it was a good cause to raise awareness of.”
