About 15 years ago I was registered homeless. I had been renting a place with a friend at the time and it went badly. I ended up sofa surfing and the spent nine months in a hostel. Because of that experience I realised how important it is to have a home you can go back to. For that reason I decided to use the light display to raise money for St Martin's homeless charity.

This year there are over 16,000 lights on the house, plus nine illuminated reindeers, a "tunnel of light" leading up to the front door, a candy cane forest, snow machine, outdoor music and an eight-foot-long sleigh that can seat up to four children.

The house is located at Allanadale Road, Tuckswood, Norwich
