A 12-year-old has doubled the amount of money raised by his annual charity Christmas light display.

Theo Comber’s house in Rushams Road, near Holy Trinity Church, was lit up with dozens of festive lights over the Christmas period.

He hosted the colourful display to raise money for Ambitious about Autism and managed to collect more than £1400.

The total is more than double the £694 raised by the youngster last year and final donations are still trickling in.

Actress and former Horsham pupil Virginia Mckenna came down to turn on the lights back in November.

A raffle, tombola and refreshments were held to collect money for the cause as well as an on site wishing well which remained at the house throughout December.

Although the lights have now come down the family’s fundraising has not stopped there.

Theo’s mother Emma and brother Zak are training to compete in this years London Marathon in aid of the same charity.
